    Thanks for uploading this. I was a year old when she passed, so I don’t really remember. Lucille Ball was just amazing though. Next year will be her 100th birthday celebration.

    @Sheri451 Lmao how was that creepy???…It happens to people all the time. I love to read these , they really make me laugh!!!

  4. Sheri451 says:

    @Pectoris4 That’s just how I felt. I LOVED Lucy. I think everyone on the planet loved her with the exception of my father. I still laugh everytime I watch her. My favorite episode is the one where she’s stuck in that freezer and icicles are hanging from her ears. And Ricky says “Don’t cry Lucy! Don’t cry!” he makes that face and says as he shakes his head “Don’t BOOO HOO HOO!” And she really could sing. I heard her sing in The Long Long Trailer

    Wasn’t it creepy how she was there with John Ritter at the award ceremony, he died the same horrible way. Aortic Valve rupturing.

  17. browneyedvertigo says:

    she was, well, what can you use to describe her? magnetic? vivacious? she has this gravitational pull to her. I’ve been watching this series since I was a little girl and she still has me laughing. there hasnt been one like her since. she really did leave behind a legacy.

  18. blah11blah says:
