I first time to meet Van was when he moved back to Fort Worth. I worked for him. He was such an amasing man. He was such an amasing person. He was very genorise and so kind. My life was blessed to have known him.There are not enough words to describe him. R.I.P Van may your music and kidness live on.

When my husband and I moved to Texas in 1984, I knew no one, but I wrote to Mr. Cliburn, asking him if I could volunteer at the piano competition. A few weeks later, I received a letter from the director of the foundation telling me that Van had forwarded my letter and that, yes, I could work for the competition. What a gracious and warm man he was, always in navy blue and always with a kind greeting for everyone.
