MaryAnne, You were the very first person I met when we moved to Babylon in 1964. You were in your backyard watching the moving van and my sister and I were told to "go play" while my parents worked. And so we did...for many years after that there were hours of playing, barbie, legos, bicycle riding, girl scouts, and having to walk to school if we couldn't get your mom to drive us. (She always drove us in the rain...remember driving around Babylon in the Jaguar? You loved that car.) I remember Bo (your dog) and all the cats ("Madame" in particular.) I remember your grandma and grandpa Michele taking us to the beach and your grandpa being an awesome swimmer would take us out far beyond the breaking waves. My parents now own your grandparent's house and of course your mom and mine are still very close. Remember 5th grade? Our entire neighborhood of 5th graders had Mrs. Levine for homeroom. I teach 5th grade now and although the times have changed, kids are the same. I also remember the spring after you passed your beautiful garden of tulips in full bloom and I remember how you worked to make it so. It's your birthday Aug. 7 and I will call your mom to let her know you're not forgotten. God Bless.

What Maria wrote was beautiful. I wish I had been friends with Mary Anne. I remember her just being a very nice and gentle person. She never bothered anybody.

I remember MaryAnne from 4th grade. She was nice and friendly to everybody. Her mom is one of the sweetest people on the planet, and I think MaryAnne inherited a lot of that from her. I got to know her brother John through my brother Raymond many years later. Just a great family.

Mary Anne was a beautiful person who I was just getting to know when she got sick and died in her tenth or eleventh year of school.The years just blend sometimes but her death I will always remember.
I remember when I really got to know her... I recall Mary Anne helping Mr. Cook with the 10th grade OKLAHOMA play always making sure we all knew our lines... how she joined us with all the celebrations after the play... she was really an awesome, fun person that was just shy.I liked her in school because she was nice and a reliable friend. I just know if she was with us today she would be on the reunion committee or even running it to make sure evrything is perfect!
After her passing she gave me the first experience of losing a friend and that was truly devastating but yet prepared me to understand what death really meant to me and have kept this feeling close to heart through out my life.

I'm so happy a picture of her was found for she should never be forgotten as a member of our class!

xoxo To Mary Anne's Family
