I remember many great personal moments with Dino and Lucy...As he was my uncle. Billy is Billy Hinsche;he also played and sang with the Beach Boys for many years. He, Desi, and my cousin Ricci, have also formed a group playing the old songs and doing a tribute to Dean. They play smaller venues like Henderson, Nv. outside Vegas...Lucille Ball and Dean Martin always made me laugh, there aren't many greats like them left; they are missed...I agree with the previous comment Lucy was very intelligent that's why her silly behavior was so charming. I even named my (red haired) golden retriever Lucy so smart and so silly she always made me laugh. Uncle Dean spent his off time golfing and with family.I was devastated when he and my aunt Jeanne,divorced; but they never really parted; she was with him all the way 'til the day he died.
