I do not have many memories of Uncle Lucky but the few I do have remind me of what a kind man he was. I remember staying with Uncle Lucky and Aunt Fran in Connecticut many years ago passing through on our way to Florida. When my father and Uncle Lucky got together there were laughs, music and loud voices. Ha! Upon the death of my father I'll always remember how gracious Uncle Lucky was to my mother. He was so warm and sincere despite having not seen her for years. Im "lucky" enough to have some of his music and I will cherish it. Much love to Fran, Naida, Rob, Wade, Tim and Autumn as well as the rest of the family.

I have fond memories of Uncle Lucky and loved his music
We were going to do a radio interview a few years ago when he was visiting down home but it didn't work out. Praying for Naida, Robbie, Tim' Wade, Aunt Fran, and his sister, Sandra Beal, my Mum, the pnly remaining Look.
