Comments

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.

Anne

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.

Rick

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

Thanks so much for this piece, Laura--

Radio

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
