A lasting memory for me will always be when Mr. Cliburn came up to me at an event at which my organization was honoring a Fort Worth person for her conservation efforts a few years ago. He congratulated me on my speech, vigorously shaking my hand as he did so. This was characteristically generous behavior by him to people, and he seemed genuinely pleased when I said that I was merely trying to emulate him. Great people are always modest. I hope he will be able to play a celestial piano for eternity.

My family loves piano. When my daughter and son were only 10, they have watched Van Cliburn Piano competitions and concerts. Since then every four years, watching the competition has become a tradition for my family. We felt that we were part of Van Cliburn music world. He brought beauty of live to my family and to the entire world. Mr. Cliburn will be deeply missed.

At the age of 6, I took piano lessons from Mrs. Cliburn in their home. "HE" was about 14 at that time and would often take time to let me sit by him as he played for me. Even then he had was very kind and was a "presence" to share space with!
