    I remember a lot of times when  our families got together.   Adults catching up and us kids playing until the adults ran out of talk I guess, no matter the hour.  

    I also remember Lucille's infectious laugh.  One time my husband and i were going into the grocery store and I heard this laugh I stopped and said to my husband listen.  He had met Lucille before and we both knew who was in the store.   We walked thru the store and sure enough there was Lucille.  When she laughed you smiled it was that kind of a laugh.  

    I think the crew is all together again.  Heaven will not be the same.
