"I love words"-Doug Hall

The Snapdragon Inn

This week we lost one of our beloved Windsor residents. Doug Hall, had been living with leukemia since 2002 and several days ago, he died gently in the night. Just two days before, this feature story was written in our local paper. It is most definitively worth taking a pause in your day to have a read. Doug released a self published collection of writings just last month and is also the author of other children's verse. He loved words and said,

He intends to keep writing until his death, he said. That could be next week, he said, or four years from now. “I love words, love listening to people, and their honky-tonk way of talking sometimes,”

Doug and his wife Rosemary were also dear friends of Bert who lived at our beloved 26 Main Street (one of the daughters of Max Perkins) before the Inn was born and they both attended our open house in July. Doug wrote this in our guestbook and it feels even more potent and lovely today,

Dear Bert,
Thank you for sharing, over the years your friendship and generous spirit. I think you would be pleased with the change. You always thought of Windsor as a dear community and gave much time. This Snapdragon Inn will add vitality to Windsor. You so loved this town. We can feel you here today. " The fancy does not cheat so well as she is famed to do: Keats

Doug's gift with words and his connection to Bert, make a lovely memory and piece of our history at Snapdragon Inn. The closing thought of the article is perfect. Thank you Doug. Our thoughts and prayers are with Rosemary and all their family at this time.

What he would like to tell people, he said, is to “live the story. So many times we can't live the story. In Egypt now, so many thousands of people now are living the story, which they weren't able to do before. It seems to me it’s so important, whatever the story is, to live it.”
