Eileen aka Lucy never met two cards she didn’t like! She has such a reputation for playing cards that shouldn’t be played and winning that when our friends have a bad beat they say “I got Lucied!” We always thought in our poker league that this was because it is free poker. Well I can tell you from experience that she plays cash the same way. Not because she was reckless but because she was so optimistic. No matter how much the odds were against her Eileen really believed she was going get what she needed to win. Eileen lived her life the same way. Even though she was 19 years my senior, lost her husband and was battling cancer for the second time in her life I couldn’t keep up with her and she always raised my spirits. Eileen really believed against all odds that she was going to win this battle with her love of family, love of life, her strength and faith in God. It may have appeared to some that I was there for her. In truth she was there for me and I am better person because she loved me. Thank you Lucy for being my friend, for showing how to have faith and for teaching me how to make the most of life. God Bless!
