“She’s given the world so much darn enjoyment, Lucille Ball is the best loved star in show business…”
Be proud, Lucy, of your legacy. Very proud. Be aware as you sit here among your grateful friends - 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. Yes, my dear friend, Lucy - YOU are the one that they love most. Joy requires no translation. God wanted the world to laugh and He invented you, Lucy. Many are called, but you were chosen.
Sammy Davis, Jr.
HAPPPY BIRTHDAY, LUCILLE BALL ♥
