I always think of you on the anniversary. I consider you a co-worker, even though we never met. I worked for The Disney Store in 2011 as well and some of your fellow cast members posted a notice about you on the DIS. I am now here at Walt Disney World but wanted your family to know that you are not forgotten.

I may not know you, but you will be missed I am only 13 and every year we hear about you and the other people that have lost their lives in the same event, but know I am really starting to understand. I am very sorry.

To all the people that see this...
Yes this is a very hard to forget and when theis happend evrybody was all up on revenge. Us as Americans should not get revenge! But forgive the people that did that will it be hard? YES! But we should we shall not be lowerthen the enamie but more mature dont fight back. FORGIVE its what god says to do...

I am still a stranger who wears Marianne's name on my wrist as a reminder of the day America stood still; united by the echoing silence of so many cries silenced by cowardice violence. I will never forget!

George, I loved your letter, sharing what Marianne meant to you. There is no way for anyone, save others who lost their precious loved ones that day, to know what this day did to you. We all grieve in our own way, me especially on this day.
Tommy Lassiter was my brother in law for a while, and I could not get enough of talking with him to find out all the minute details about that day in 2001, and more importantly, Marianne. May they both rest in peace.

All love,
Peg Yates

This past Saturday, September 11, 2010, roughly 3000 bikers converged on a local motorcycle dealer's lot to participate in the annual "Freedom Ride" in Kansas City. This is a short ride of only a few miles, but the parade of motorcycles spans the entire route. This year organizers of the ride placed cards on each motorcycle that represented one of the 9/11 victims.... Marianne MacFarlane rode with me this year! How great it is to see what kind of person she was, to read testimonials from those who loved her, and to get to know a bit more about the person who "rode" with me this year.

I have prayed and cried for all the families affected so tragically by 9-11. I wish I had known Marianne! She sounds so beautiful: A wonderful friend that I know I would have been glad to have. Surely the world is a poorer place without her.

Love and prayers to all,
Newburyport, Massachusetts

Thinking of you and your family today.

Marianne ... we were classmates in grade school. If she was anything in adulthood like she was as a child, she was a quiet, gentle person. I always felt then, in my limited understanding (though children know so much), she was a GOOD SOUL. In memory this is how you shall remain. You are, and will be, remembered, Marianne.

Another year has passed ... thought of you at 0903 this morning. Here's to you.... Sadly, I am not at the Baron.

*** Posted by Erik Fransen on 2008-09-11 ***

I worked with Marianne in Bangor. I can still remember those crazy nights in the Baron. I can't believe it's been 6 years today. You are missed.

Shortly after 911, memorial bands were made for those of us to remember the heros of 911. The name on my memorial band is Marianne Macfarlane. For the past 5 years she and her family have been in my prayers and my families prayers. On this 5 year anniversary I would like Her family to know that people who never met you and her are praying for you. We pray for peace of heart and mind and a healing for you as we remember Marianne. Marianne and you will always be in our prayers.

My mom worked with Marianne and her mom.  We were friends as well.  I miss her and think of her often.

Marianne was the Happiest, most caring and Loving person I've ever met. She was a friend for life to everyone she came in contact with. She Loved life and lived it to the fullest, enjoying every minute of it. Marianne had been to Walt Disney World over 2oo times, she worked part time in the Disney Store in Boston and for United Airlines, she had just started a modeling career by appearing in a magazine about White water rafting. After travelling and Disney World that was her next passion. She was a Great Aunt to her nephew Mike, taking him to California to follow the Red Sox on a road trip, they were best buddies. Marianne would take her neice Stephanie shopping for hours on end, they went rafting together, in short they were also best buddies. That's how it was with Marianne, anyone that was with her felt like her best friend, she just made you feel Special and Loved, like you were the only one who mattered to her. Marianne was very close to her family, she was a Daddies girl, and when her Father(George) was alive they would speak 10 - 20 times a day on the phone. Marianne was in Bangor Maine and her Father was in Mass., she would travel home on weekends just to be with her family. Her Mother (Anne) and her used to go to Disney World every other week just to get their hair done and shop and lie in the sun. She quit her job and moved home when her Dad passed away, she thought she should be there to take care of the family and maybe be taken care of a little bit. Marianne & her younger brother Joe were always together from childhood and beyond. they did everything together. They moved to Florida together, they both worked at the airport, they went to sporting events, everything. Marianne would never say it but she was trying to watch out for her little brother, to make sure nothing happened to him, and she Loved every minute of it! When Marianne first met her future sister in law, Patty, she told her older brother George, "it was like meeting my best friend all over again". They became very close, closer than most sisters. In fact Marianne helped George plan the most romantic proposal in the world. It was so good the Walt Disney World took the plan and made it into a engagement package - and it's one of there most popular packages!! Marianne helped plan a very beautiful Wedding in - where else - Disney World, she also was one of the Bridesmaids and THE life of all the parties that were thrown that week!! Marianne Idolized her older brother George, there are pictures of them as kids where you can see Marianne trying to look like him, act like him, stand like him, etc.. She took care of him a lot more than he took care of his little sister, she was his Best Pal, his shoulder when he needed to cry, his drinking partner, his confidant. She was the one to kick him in the behind when he was procrastinating, and she was the one to slow him down when he was to exuberant. Marianne was very proud of her families business - Firefighting. She had taken the test herself, when she was given the Firefighting phase of her Flight Attendant training she couldn't wait to call George and tell him all about it. She was so proud and so happy that she was again just like her big brother. Every time there was a fire she would call George at the Firehouse or on his cell phone just to make sure he was OK or to tell him to be careful. In fact on September 10 there was a big fire in East Boston, Marianne saw it from the Airport and called George's cell phone, he was on a call (not at the fire though) so she left him a message, "Hi Georgie, It's Gwendolyn (her brother's pet name for her) I can see the fire in Eastie and just wanted to make sure you're not there. If you are, be careful. I know I'm being silly but I Love Ya, Ya big Jerk. I'll see you later." I know what the message said because Marianne was my little Sister!!

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site.

Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!
