"I smiled when I read that Lue dressed like a movie star, and yes she did! She was a classy lady. I have lots of good memories of her, especially her determination to find me a husband! Physically I won't be able to get to the funeral, but my heart will be there. Rest in Peace, Lucille, you are with your belloved Mickey now."
