I Love Lucy star Lucille Ball died more than 20 years ago -- on April 26, 1989, at the age of 77. So why did her daughter rush to court last week to save awards, love letters and other personal items of the famous comedienne?
Reportedly, when Lucille passed, she left love letters between she and her first husband, Desi Arnaz, along with her lifetime achievement awards, photographs and other items to Lucille and Desi's daughter, Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill. But, apparently, Luckinbill never claimed the items from Lucille's estate and lost them.
So they ended up in the hands of Susie Morton. Morton is the widow of Gary Morton, who was Lucille Ball's second husband. After Lucille passed, these items, along with a Rolls-Royce, were passed to Gary Morton, and then onto Susie after Gary died.
