Real ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ Gravely Ill

Despite the somber news, this is a sweet story:
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.

Turns out, the real Lucy isn't a big fan of the song written about her. Well, that's okay. It wasn't her choice to be written about and she couldn't help being the inspiration for Julian's picture and John's song.

Hey, might as well snatch a picture from the story while I'm there:
