“"maggie and millie and molly and may"
maggie and millie and molly and may
went down to the beach (to play one day)
and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,and
millie befriended a stranded star
who's rays five languid fingers were;
and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and
may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.
For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea.”
“When Dan called and asked me to prepare a eulogy for Maggie, I said yes, because there is nothing in the world I wouldn't do for Maggie. But then, the weight of the task hit me. Maggie was a very complex woman. She was my closest friend. She was my inspiration, my role model for 50 years.”
“I think Maggie was a little off. This was the first game in the heat, and it bothered her a little. But I told her this was a 'pitching win.' It's easy to throw when you have your good stuff, but she really gutted one out to keep us in the game.”
“This is a tremendous honor and thrill for me to be named the head coach at West Point. Maggie Dixon and I, and the staff, started something very special back in October. I embrace the opportunity to continue what we started and look forward to continued success in the years to come with this group of players.”
