Rest in Peace Lucille Désirée Ball !
August 6, 1911~ April 26, 1989 

"The sun never sets on Lucille Ball. All over this worried world tonight, nations of untold millions are watching reruns they also watched the first time around. Joy requires no translation. God wanted the world to laugh, and he invented you. Many were called, but you were chosen. All of the funny hats, the baggy pants, the mustaches and the wigs, and the pratfalls and and the blacked out teeth - they didn’t fool us one minute. We saw through all the disguises, and what we found inside is more than we deserve.”|

- Sammy Davis, Jr


"We went to see Duel of Angels, a play with Vivien Leigh. We went backstage and met Vivien. Lucy and I went to the Brown Derby across the street. She was very depressed and just sat there and fiddled with her food. She said, “What I do is so meaningless, so unimportant. She is such a great actress. Look what she can do!” To cheer her up, I said, “But, Lucy, think of the millions of people you’ve affected. Could Vivien ever, ever affect that many millions of people like you do?” She turned to me and said, “Have you ever heard of that little movie called Gone with the Wind?”.
-Bob Osborne on Lucille Ball
