Maryann Hall

Friday, May 18, 2012
I met Maryann at the Springfield library where I work. Maryann could light up a room with her dazzling smile. It was always such a pleasure to visit with her. The last time we visited she was telling me about the gown she was going to wear to her daughter's wedding. She was so very excited about her daughter's wedding. Thank you for posting all the lovely pics, especially of the wedding. I feel very blessed to have crossed paths with such a warm, vibrant human being. I'm so sorry to hear of her passing.

An angel will be missed. Maryann's smile, laughter and love for life was infectious. She was warm, caring and a true friend. Karen, Jake and Bill you were her life. I feel honored to have met her and will carry her memory in my heart. Love you Mar, I miss you already.

I WISH YOU ENOUGH!
RECENTLY I OVERHEARD A MOTHER AND DAUGHTER IN THEIR LAST MOMENTS TOGETHER AT THE AIRPORT. THEY HAD ANNOUNCED THE DEPARTURE.
STANDING NEAR THE SECURITY GATE, THEY HUGGED AND THE MOTHER SAID, “I LOVE YOU, AND I WISH YOU ENOUGH!”
THE DAUGHTER REPLIED, “MOM, OUR LIFE TOGETHER HAS BEEN MORE THAN ENOUGH. YOUR LOVE IS ALL I EVER NEEDED. I WISH YOU ENOUGH, TOO, MOM!”
THEY KISSED AND THE DAUGHTER LEFT. THE MOTHER WALKED OVER TO THE WINDOW WHERE I WAS SEATED. STANDING THERE I COULD SEE SHE WANTED AND NEEDED TO CRY. I TRIED NOT TO INTRUDE ON HER PRIVACY, BUT SHE WELCOMED ME IN BY ASKING, “DID YOU EVER SAY GOOD-BYE TO SOMEONE KNOWING IT WOULD BE FOREVER?”
“YES, I HAVE” I REPLIED. “FORGIVE ME FOR ASKING, BUT WHY IS THIS A FOREVER GOOD-BYE?”
“I AM OLD, AND SHE LIVES SO FAR AWAY. I HAVE CHALLENGES AHEAD AND THE REALITY IS – THE NEXT TRIP BACK WILL BE FOR MY FUNERAL,” SHE SAID.
“WHEN YOU WERE SAYING GOOD-BYE, I HEARD YOU SAY, “I WISH YOU ENOUGH.” MAY I ASK WHAT THAT MEANS?”
SHE BEGAN TO SMILE, “THAT'S A WISH THAT HAS BEEN HANDED DOWN FROM OTHER GENERATIONS. MY PARENTS USED TO SAY IT TO EVERYONE.” SHE PAUSED A MOMENT AND LOOKED UP AS IF TRYING TO REMEMBER IT IN DETAIL, AND SHE SMILED EVEN MORE. “WHEN WE SAID, “IWISH YOU ENOUGH,” WE WERE WANTING THE OTHER PERSON TO HAVE A LIFE FILLED WITH JUST ENOUGH GOOD THINGS TO SUSTAIN THEM.” THEN TURNING TOWARD ME, SHE SHARED THE FOLLOWING AS IF SHE WERE RECITING IT FROM MEMORY.
I WISH YOU ENOUGH SUN TO KEEP YOUR ATTITUDE BRIGHT NO MATTER HOW GRAY THE DAY MAY APPEAR.
I WISH YOU ENOUGH RAIN TO APPRECIATE THE SUN EVEN MORE.
I WISH YOU ENOUGH HAPPINESS TO KEEP YOUR SPIRIT ALIVE AND EVERLASTING.
I WISH YOU ENOUGH PAIN SO THAT EVEN THE SMALLEST OF JOYS IN LIFE MAY APPEAR BIGGER.
I WISH YOU ENOUGH GAIN TO SATISFY YOUR WANTING.
I WISH YOU ENOUGH LOSS TO APPRECIATE ALL THAT YOU POSSESS.
I WISH YOU ENOUGH HELLOS TO GET YOU THROUGH THE FINAL GOOD-BYE.
SHE THEN BEGAN TO CRY AND WALKED AWAY. TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES, I WISH YOU ENOUGH! TAKE TIME TO LIVE!
WE LOVE YOU MARYANN! Love Patti

Mare~

You will never be forgotten by me. I could not have asked for a better sister-in-law, or wife for my brother. You took just enough of the "Bad Boy" out of him to make him the man he is today. The two of you were so in love all 23 years of your marriage. You were both blessed because of that. You were his best friend, as well as his wife and I know you will always keep an eye on him to keep him going. I can never thank you enough for sharing in his life. Love Yah, Kare
