Dear PW,

As many of you already know, our dear friend and #1 poster, Apple, lost her battle with her illness at 6:15 this morning.

I am starting this thread because I would like to do something in her memory and I believe that I am not alone here. Please add your thoughts and perhaps we can do something beautiful in her memory.

With love Apple,

Rest in peace, Apple.

We are all less because you have left us, and heaven is a lot richer.

You've been a rock, and an inspiration to all of us for all these years.

Thanks Rich,

A number of Apple's friends have posted in the Pianist Corner as that is where she
spent a good deal of her time, but it is a good idea to post here too as some people only
read the "Piano" forum.

This is the thread in the Corner...

My sincere condolences to Apple and her family and friends.

She was a wonderful, sweet lady and was an inspiration to all who knew her.

She will be missed but never forgotten.

Hi Rich,

I also feel that a memorial for Apple, from the membership at PW, would be most appropriate. She was an extrodinary member and a friend to all.

Are you thinking in terms of a scholarship or maybe a living memorial such as a tree? I'm sure that there will be many ideas brought forth.

Thank you for suggesting this idea.

With thoughts of Apple,


Marty in Minnesota

As a new poster in PW, I didn't know Apple well, but always enjoyed her posts, which I thought were always appropriate and kind.

My sincerest sympathies to her family.

May the music she loved bring you peace.

This is very sad news indeed. I know that many here knew her personally and I offer my condolences to you all.

She was devoted to her music it seemed that she touched many hearts on this website. May her sweet memory live on in your hearts.

To her family and friends, my profound sympathy.

Robert.

I'm sorry to hear she passed away. I don't believe I had much contact with her but from everything I hear she was a nice person.

My condolences to her friends and family.

My condolences and prayers go out to her family and friends. As one of the many PW friends Apple had in the Piano Forum and the Pianist Forum I will miss her informative, friendly, empathetic, and enjoyable posts. The world and music are less without her.

Apple was the ultimate Piano Girl. She loved music, she loved her job, she loved us.

I suggest each of us take a moment to play a song this evening in her memory. She'll hear us.

I didn't know Apple except through her posts here. I found her to be always helpful and encouraging. RIP Apple, I know the music is beautiful where you are at rest.

At first, she only flew when she thought no one was watching.

Frank, how about a final posting of her passing in the Coffee Room where she was the moderator? Are you able to open it for that?

Thanks,
Woody

She will be missed....

How about chipping in to give some deserving player a new piano in Apple's memory. I'd be willing to arrange to provide the piano at cost anywhere in the US and chip in $500.

Steve, that sounds like a wonderful idea, but it might be very hard to carry out in terms of logistics such as selecting a recipient.... Or alternatively, a school or a church might be the recipient?

Rich, I was thinking about a donation to a cancer research organization? Also, I think it's too soon, but in the next few days, her family may have some suggestions about how we could honor her memory.

Other members may have ideas as well?

I think we could find a recipient through teachers who post on the many Piano World forums.

I am so sorry to hear that she is not among us anymore.

I only know Apple from these forums. She always had good post, advices and comments. Hope she gets the best grand piano in heaven. She was a very good human with a heart.

Dear Apple......RIP.......
