In Memory of Montessori

I am not a visitor to the community board. However, I know Montessori frequented this board. I just received an e-mail from her husband that she passed away on 7/31......

I am completely in shock and in sadness. I got to know Mary Ann when I first became a DVC member and she rented points from me. She was my first renter and became a repeat renter and a good friend. She was always funny, full of energy and LOVED Disney World. She was from Boston but she had not been back too often because she could never go past Orlando (she lived in FL south of Orlando), in her words.

Some of her organs were donated to others, just like how she would have done.

I am sure there are plenty of you here who had gotten to know Mary Ann over the years and can share our fond memories of her.

Mary Ann, I will miss you....................................... Rest in Peace.

What a shock.

I am terribly sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers go out to her friends and family.

I'm shocked to read this.

I am so sorry. My sincerest sympathies to her family and friends. I'm absolutely shocked.
When you look into a child's face, and you're seeing the human race, and the endless possibilities there where so much can come true, and you think of the beautiful things a child can do, how long -- would the child survive, how long -- if it was up to you?
When you think about the money spent on defense by a government and the weapons of destruction we've built, we're so sure that we need, and you think of the millions and millions that money could feed, how long -- can you hear someone crying, how long -- can you hear someone dying before you ask yourself why?

I'll keep her family in my prayers.

Do you have any more details? I don't remember her posting of being ill. How sad.

I would be sitting on the patio of the Fontana bar at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas watching the dancing fountains on a warm balmy night whilst sipping vintage Champagne
