February 14, 2010


Thanks for this, Laura. I met Lucille only a few times, but it wasn't hard to pick up on her warmth and generosity as a person.

Laura, thank you for this lovely memory of our good friend, Lucille. I am too stunned still to really fathom that she has passed. I wish her a fond farewell and good travels.


Laura, I had to comment on your association with Lucille, and how I came to know her through you. You described her perfectly, and yes, even though I did not know her as well, her warmth, and what she did for you will never be forgotten.
I had made another comment, but on the next site of yours, but again, I must say that people like Lucille are rare, and once in a lifetime.

You have been so lucky in your gatherings of close friends, and I am so lucky to have you as my wife.

Lucille will live long after her physical presence has left us, and I too am sad. She was a wonderful person whom helped us both at difficult times.


Wow Rick . . .this is a moving response to Laura's post. You two are lucky to have each other. Thanks for joining in here.

Thanks so much for this piece, Laura--
