    Mrs. Nibbelink was one of my greatest inspirations in my youth. I am a better person because she believed in my musical abilities and pushed me to work harder. Her and her husband Paul have always been kind to me, and I am glad to have known both of them. I’ll see you in the practice room again one day, Mrs. N.
