I have a real soft spot for Lucy- she looked like my mother and I grew up with her...her gift to me was soooo much laughter. I'm glad that she died quickly and didn't know what was happening...one minute she was here and the next she knew she was floating and in another world- what a way to go, Lucy!!!
