I just saw a post on facebook from Monica's daughter Athena. She said that Monica passed away at 9:00 tonight.

I couldn't agree more. Terrible news.
She was a welcoming and level-headed presence for several years on the main Piano Forum when I started posting here.

This board is sort of a family, and Monica was one of the wise seniors. Bless her memory.

So sorry to hear about Monica’s passing. I was amazed that she performed so well for our last recital. It was only a couple of weeks ago. Most people on hospice are confined to bed but there she was at the keyboard playing her favorite composer.

I'm very sad to hear it. While she and I didn't often 'meet' on here despite our both being such long-time members, I was always very happy when we were in the same discussions -- she was such a warm presence. I will miss her very much.

One of life's greatest pleasures is being in the presence of goodness. Monica made sacrifices for the rest of us and probably never gave it a second thought. I'm happy she had children, they will be a great legacy for her, and the world will be better for their presence.

Now, I'll go grieve.

How nicely she played! Music is a journey.

I may not participate in these forums these days but they did make Monica's and my path cross online and in person. I've only met a few people I've known from online a few times and Monica was likely the nicest.

Her presence in this world will surely be missed by all those she had touched.

Rest In Peace Monica.

Oh so sad. So fast!


Playing the piano is learning to create, playfully and deeply seriously, our own music in the world.

I'm so glad she got to participate in a recital dedicated to her, knowing that so many people were thinking of her.

True. I also think we should - permanently - name the recital after her in her memory.
