Dear Mom,
As I grappled with writing your obituary, I was reminded of the movie “Big Fish”. In trying to summarize and memorialize your life, I remembered vividly so many of the stories you told me. I remembered you telling of standing on Ticaboo's bare back to pick apples at the ranch, killing rattlesnakes, and when you drove Grandpa Hazen's Cadillac into a ditch. I remembered your tales of glory, fun and mischief in college. I remember it all--each and every story throughout your life—meeting the President in the Rose Garden, walking and talking with Senator Hatch in the halls under the Capitol on the day the Monica Lewinsky story broke, smoking with Alexander Haig on an airport layover, the list is endless. They were larger than life. You were larger than life and as I grew older, I grew more distant and dispassionate. I ceased to idolize you and became skeptical, just like the son in the movie. As I sifted through the events and accolades of your life, trying to piece together something meaningful, it all came back to me and like the ending of the movie, I realized that it was all real. Perhaps a little embellished for “flavor”, but nevertheless, it was all true--the extraordinary people, the amazing achievements and all the magic that made you such a Big Fish.
Today I watched the movie and at the ending I cried. I cried harder than I have since the day you died. I miss you and I love you. You were a glorious and amazing “Big Fish”.

If you lived in Utah, you could no more be unaware of Maggie Wilde than you could be unaware of Mount Olympus. She was miles ahead of most of us in her understanding of what women needed to do, but she always led with wit and wisdom rather than impatience. Sincerest condolences to her family and all who loved her. ~~Elouise Bell

I spent many summers with cousin Maggie at our grandparents ranch. She is my friend and I miss her.

Maggie's response, on hearing someone's good news, was to break into a wide grin and exclaim: "That's . . . so . . . BIG!" She remains so more than 35 years after my wife Robbie and I left Salt Lake to live and work in Washington. I realize now that Maggie was one of the first people I met who was fully capable of creative, joyful mischief. She definitely . . . was . . . so . . . BIG!
