Judy Gaman was so busy making a name for herself that she barely took
the time to meet a stranger, enjoy life, or simply stop to breathe.
Immersed in her job as the director of business development for a
high-profile medical practice—a job that required her to write health
and wellness books and host a nationally syndicated radio show—she spent
every day going full speed ahead with no looking back. That is, until
the day she met Lucille Fleming.
While writing a book on longevity, Judy interviewed Lucille, an elegant
and spirited woman who had just recently turned 100. Lucille had the
fashion and style of old Hollywood, but it was all hidden behind the
doors of her assisted living center. What began as a quick meeting
became a lasting friendship that transformed into an inseparable bond.
Lucille brought incredible wisdom and great stories to the table, while
Judy provided an avenue for excitement and new opportunities. Together,
the two began living life to the fullest, and meeting the most
interesting people along the way (including Suzanne Somers). But then
Lucille's life came to an end through unexpected and unfortunate
circumstances—and the very first lesson she ever taught Judy proved to
be the most important one of all.
