Mrs. Holland was a force of nature who touched the hearts of so many of her students. Not only was she the most incredible piano teacher, but she was our adopted Grandmother. I speak for myself, Justin and Tamara by saying we will miss her very much. We send our love, thoughts, and prayers to the entire family during this time. Mrs. Holland spoke of y’all often — she loved you with her whole heart.

Dear Camilla, Andy and all the family~ I am deeply saddened to hear of Guydana's passing. She was such a special soul with a wonderful sense of humor. She and my Mom were quite the pair and I was always so grateful that she was there for Mom. We kept in touch after Mom passed and it was always so nice to hear from her. Coincidentally, they both lived long lives to 92. The picture I've attached was on my Mom's 92nd birthday. I'm sure she was right there to greet her and they are enjoying their friendship once again. Be well and much love, Robin

She was a great mother, companion and eventually an even better friend. She was my champion, critic and teller of hard things when necessary. She was the solid ground underneath me when things got hard – and now, she is gone. It was a great struggle for me to be able to put my feelings into words. If this was pen and paper (instead of a typed document), the page would be wrinkled and the ink and words runny because of my tears. Anyone who has attended my workshops will remember her well, as she was incorporated in to each one either through pictures or some quote or words of wisdom. She learned to use a tablet in her late 80s, calling it “the box.” Her favorite vacation was one we took (in her late 70s) to the Outer Banks where we stayed in a round house overlooking the ocean. Many mornings I would find her sitting on the deck composing songs, using her music degree from Greensboro College. She will be missed by many – she already is by me. Love ya’ Ma.
