My dear Maggie--Of course our wonderful community will go on without you, but it will simply not be the same without your shining presence--especially in VOICES and the ICC where we sang together. I'll never forget the fun we had doing the research and writing the script for the Tribute to Broadway VOICES concert last spring. We learned so much together and were so excited to be the emcees for the show in lieu of Billy Crystal.. Alas,
we both ended up sick that night. My deepest condolences to Bill and your lovely family of whom you were so proud. What a beautiful, bright model you have been to me. Lovingly,

The world loses another Thompson and is the sadder for it. Rest in peace beautiful and know the song doesn't sound the same without your voice singing along...

My sincere condolences to Bill and all of Maggie's family. I came to know Maggie through VOICES about five years ago. She was an amazing woman: full of life, boundless energy, and one of the most kind and giving souls I have ever met. I will truly miss the sparkle in her eye and her remarkable spirit that gave to everyone, asking nothing in return. Thank you, Maggie.

8th grade, E building. The year was 1982. I told Maggie I'd been reading A Tale of Two Cities. First of all, I wanted to tell her. Second, she responded that she "allowed herself one Dickens a year." Her passion for literature was unmistakable. She was excited about my choice of reading, and she was with me. In an instant, at age 12, I saw she was a kindred spirit. Later in the school year she oversaw my transport to the fairy realm of A Midsummer Night's Dream, in which I played Puck. Rest in peace, beloved teacher.

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended—
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend.
If you pardon, we will mend.
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearnèd luck
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
We will make amends ere long.
Else the Puck a liar call.
So good night unto you all.
Give me your hands if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.

That these words are drilled into my head forever is your doing. Thank you.

Maggie was a wonderful teacher and an all around great person. I was lucky to take several of her English classes when I was at ACS in the 80s. My condolences to her family. She will be missed.

What a treasure of a woman and what a loss. Maggie gifted so many young people with her commitment and belief in them and the community at large with her thoughtful contributions wherever she walked. I feel blessed to have known her, even from afar.

I am so sorry to hear of Maggie's passing. She introduced me to English in 7th grade and then encouraged me to try the spelling bee. While I did well on paper, I learned a valuable lesson in the oral competition as I decided to try coffee for the first time that morning... I will always remember her winning smile and gentle spirit.
