    Mrs. Wall was my piano teacher from the age of 6 through my early teen years. My parents met her while I was attending The Children’s House in Pearl City. I remember going to her condo in Kukui Plaza every Saturday for piano lessons. We left Hawaii in the mid 80’s to live on the mainland.

    Mrs. Wall has always been in my thoughts and I’ve often wondered about her. With the power of the internet, I’m sad to hear of her passing. Mrs. Wall was a kind soul. I still have all of the sheet music from those days and cherish the memories and teachings that I’ve learned from her. With deepest condolences.
