Real 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' gravely ill

LONDON (AP) -- They were childhood chums. Then they drifted apart, lost touch completely, and only renewed their friendship decades later, when illness struck.
Not so unusual, really.
Except she is Lucy Vodden the girl who was the inspiration for the Beatles' 1967 psychedelic classic "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" and he is Julian Lennon, the musician son of John Lennon.
They are linked together by something that happened more than 40 years ago when Julian brought home a drawing from school and told his father, "That's Lucy in the sky with diamonds..."

That lovely little girl grew up to be an attractive woman. too bad she is ill.
Lupus generally isn’t an acute disease all that likely to cause death. My sister was diagnosed with Lupus over 20 years ago. She’s got plenty of health issues as a result but she’s getting treatment as the new issues arise.
It may not be life threatening over here (yet), but if she’s under the British health care system, who knows?
LOL good point. My sister lives in Livonia but doesn’t go over to Windsor for treatment.
There have been several threads on this over the past week but I didn’t get a timely bump along...
The gossip at the time of that song was it was about LSD. That drug was a big thing at the time...
I wasn’t aware that song was based on a real person. Hopefully she will receive the best treatment, John Lennon’s imagination gave us all a lot of good memories.
Wow... always thought it was LSD and not a real Lucy.
How cool is that! Kudos to Julian Lennon too.
Prayers for Lucy.
