I Love Lucy

As many of you know, we have had some very sad news in our family. In my sister's own words, here is what transpired as they anticipated the arrival of their new baby:

"We returned to the hospital next morning at 6:30 am and at that time they were no longer able to find a heart beat. More and more Doctors tried to find it and soon our room was filled with so many that we knew that things had gone very wrong. We were told that at some time during the night our precious angel's heart had stopped beating. There is no explanation that could be found at that time. "

"At 3:38pm Monday, August 27, 2007 our perfect angel arrived:

Olive Lucy Kawecki

Aug 27, 2007 3:38 PM7 lbs, 8 oz.

22 1/2 inches long

And she has great big clown feet."

I flew out Wednesday to be with my family and to attend the services for Lucy. Everything about the service was a lovely tribute to her and the impact she has in our lives. At a moment when the strings could have come loose within our family, she pulled them tight. She helped me to understand that I should call a little more, stay longer on my knees, dance and not care, and not be afraid to share my talents. As we (Me, My Dad, Noodle, and Jeff) played "You are My Sunshine" on the ukulele for her, Lucy taught me that it's okay to let her memory and laughter occupy the same space.

Thank you so much Watson and Christine for letting me be a part of the services. I truly became acquainted with Lucy as I had the honor of creating her slide show. I feel like I was able to experience "Lucy's Journey", as Watson titled it.

I know that we'll see her again and that her memory will never fade from our hearts. As Christine mentioned during the service, Lucy will continue to giggle at the fact that we can't help but say, "I Love Lucy."
