I will always remember Mrs. Fry! Like many of the neighbor kids I took piano lessons from her for several years. She was so patient with us, even when we weren’t as prepared as we should have been. She could also be funny, and used to tease me for being weird because of playing the bassoon. She was just a great presence, one who enriched my life in long term ways.
