Lucy In The Sky

Notoriety and anonymity seldom coexist, but did in the case of Lucy O'Donnell.  The childhood friend of Julian Lennon credited as being the inspiration for the Beatles song Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds was just 4 years old when classmate Julian Lennon drew a picture of her surrounded by stars and showed it to his father.  John Lennon was inspired by the drawing and his son describing it as "It's Lucy in the sky with diamonds". The song about the "...girl with kaleidoscope eyes", the third song on Sgt. Pepper,  convinced many that the first letters in "Lucy", "Sky" and "Diamonds" were more than coincidental.  Lucy, who took the last name of her husband after marrying, passed away after battling Lupus last week.
