1. “He made them up out of his memory.” “That why we say Berniece ain't gonna sell the piano.” Their life's were craved onto the piano.
2. These words shows the importance of the piano to the family by it getting trade off with slaves, then it sort of became a part of them because Mr. Nolander craved every memory he remembered onto the piano.
3. The conflict was that Berniece and boy Charles wanted to sell the piano but his sister wouldn't let.
4. In my opinion I think that the family should keep the piano because they inherited it and it was important to most of them because of the family craving that was craved onto the piano and the piano is like part of the family treasure.
