Maryzee was a lovely person.  I was lucky enough to know her through the forums and through our mutual enthusiasm for BookCrossing.  I never got to meet her in person, but I know we would have been instant friends.

Now, I want to share this comment from someone who knew her well.  Thanks to Katekintail for sharing this post from the BCinDC   blog.

"On September 8, BCinDC lost one of our most enthusiastic and dedicated members. MaryZee was a great supporter of and advocate for BookCrossing. She arranged and managed the BookCrossing table at our local Random House bookfair. At book festivals, she was always excited to not just give books away but explain about going online to see where books had been. She maintained many OBCZs over the years as well as wonderfully themed bookboxes. She was generous with her time–helping out at our convention–and with her books–thrusting them upon her friends with detailed recommendations.
Memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association, P.O. Box 5216, Glen Allen, VA, 23058.

We are grateful for the time Mary chose to spend with us and the books she shared. We are glad we could call such a sweet and caring woman our friend. And everyone in BCinDC will miss her greatly."

And everyone at BookCrossing will miss her as well.
