Happy 73rd Anniversary Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz
November 30, 1940
"It wasn’t love at first sight. It took a full five minutes."
Happy 73 anniversary Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz!!
I was with my father when he died and my mother was the last person that he spoke to. And, all she said to him was “I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you.” She just wanted to let him know that she loved him, and he said, “I love you too, honey.” And ten minutes later, he closed his eyes and he went into a coma and he was gone within twenty-four hours. And then I didn’t realize it until the next day that that was their anniversary. It was November 30th, because he died within twenty-four hours, the early morning of December 2nd. They loved each other forever. - Lucie Arnaz, 2013
