the sun never sets on lucille ball

Rest in peace, Lucille Désirée Ball

AUGUST 6, 1911 - APRIL 26, 1989

“It may be that during business hours God and the angels sit around watching six-hour documentaries, but in the back family room they’re watching I Love Lucy. I believe there is laughter in heaven because Lucille Ball is there.”

-Diane Sawyer

“She is one of the few individuals in history to be on a solely first name basis with the world: Marilyn, Elvis, Lucy. She was a national treasure. She remains a world icon, recognizable from Tallahassee to Timbuktu  from Paduach to Peru. No other performer in any medium of either sex has inspired the devotion and generated the international love and appreciation that she has. Said one admirer: “Lucy…is a common denominator for nations, continents, and hemispheres, doing in entertainment what others have not accomplished in professional diplomacy.” 

-“Women Pioneers in Television”
