Judy Gaman was so busy making a name for herself that she barely took the time to meet a stranger, enjoy life, or simply stop to breathe. Immersed in her job as the director of business development for a high-profile medical practice―a job that required her to write health and wellness books and host a nationally syndicated radio show―she spent every day going full speed ahead with no looking back. That is, until the day she met Lucille Fleming.
While writing a book on longevity, Judy interviewed Lucille, an elegant and spirited woman who had just recently turned 100. Lucille had the fashion and style of old Hollywood, but it was all hidden behind the doors of her assisted living center. What began as a quick meeting became a lasting friendship that transformed into an inseparable bond. Lucille brought incredible wisdom and great stories to the table, while Judy provided an avenue for excitement and new opportunities. Together, the two began living life to the fullest, and meeting the most interesting people along the way (including Suzanne Somers). But then Lucille’s life came to an end through unexpected and unfortunate circumstances―and the very first lesson she ever taught Judy proved to be the most important one of all.
I have a delightful read for you today. If you follow me and read my posts you know that one of my favorite things is reading book centered around Centenarians. I adore reading about our elderly, learning about life, love, mistakes made and successes achieved. The older population is truly a gold mine, we can learn so much from them. When I had the opportunity to read LOVE, LIFE, & LUCILLE by Judy Gaman, you know I jumped at the chance.
With a busy life as a writer and radio show host, Judy Gaman didn’t really have the chance to savor her own life. When she took on the task of writing a book on longevity, Judy met and interviewed Lucille, a wonderful woman who had just turned 100. The two ladies became fast friends, both benefiting from the friendship, one with wisdom and the other with motivation, both thriving and living life in the moment. When Lucille unexpectedly passes away, Judy learns how remarkably important the lessons Lucille taught her are so essential to flourish in life.
Such a beautiful memoir. From making you reminisce about your own relationships, to questioning your own decisions, and receiving some inspiring advice, Judy Gaman has captured a life and friendship on paper like no other. I almost feel like Lucille was my own friend, and the prose was written so well I felt as if I was experiencing these memories with Judy. This book demonstrates the power of friendship and how necessary it is to connect with others, and truly highlights the importance of the elderly in our life. Such treasures, we need to cherish our aging community, learn from them, and celebrate their lives and all they have worked for and have given us. Judy Gaman shared a delightful memoir, heartwarming and funny yet heartbreaking at the same time, truly worth the read. I highly recommend this book.
