Thanks Mother!

Since my Mother was the one who made sure I had time and resources to nurture my love for the piano, it seems appropriate to start this special week of ticket sales off (honoring National Piano Month) with a tribute to her life and to all mothers who take time to invest in their children.
September 24, 2014, my Mother, Bertha Mae Sollenberger Crider Heisey went home to heaven. It was the first year of the Portraits of White concert and she never got to see it.
My sister posted this on FaceBook the day she died.
Wednesday morning, 7:48 September 24, 2014
Bertha is gone. It is done.
Just a gradual fade at the end,
less and less breath….
And then the last.
I was with her all night and at the end.
No struggle.
Peaceful departing.
This part of the journey is over, and a new one begins.
September 24, 2014 6:55 am
Sunrise officially is 6:59 …. Good choice, Mother.
Bon voyage!

  1. I live in NJ and enjoyed your concert at Tuscarora, PA last year. Portraits of White sounds wonderful. Thanks for keeping me in your loop. I purchased three of your CD’s and ready enjoyed them. Is there a site where l could purchase more? Wish you were coming to Tuscarora again this year. Thank you for your musical ministry.


    1. Hi Edith, Thanks for your kind comments. I always enjoy my time at Tuscarora. I’d love for you to come to see Portraits of White. It’s spectacular! You can purchase more of my music directly from me if you wish. Just tell me which CDs you’d like to order.
