As you know, Lucille Ball was my good friend.
To her, I was "The Kid," and she was a tremendous teacher and mentor. Her passing left a hole in my heart that can never be filled.
I am thrilled to know of the work you are doing to preserve Lucy and Desi’s legacy. And you are correct in recognizing that it is a legacy of more than props and costumes and personal belongings: it is truly a legacy of love and laughter.
Should the stars ever properly align, I would welcome the opportunity to visit Jamestown and celebrate her legacy with you.
One hundred years from now people around the world will still be laughing at Lucy’s antics. And I hope that for those folks who want to learn more about that wonderful clown, her hometown will still be honoring the one and only Lucy.
