Oh god - I've got tears in my eyes watching this. This really made me emotional. Question, does anyone know what happened to John Dodds after Viv died? When/how did he die?
Let's hope Life With Lucy or another Lucy special is released this year!

John Dodds, b. 1922; successful NY publisher, married to Vivian Vance (Lucy's Ethel Mertz), from 1961 until her death, in 1979; who, in later life, became friends with an antique dealer, named Serge, becoming his best friend, and on his death in 1986, bequeathed his entire estate, including Vivian's possessions, included in which was a scrapbook and memoirs of his late wife, which had been, to date, unpublished, dies this date in 1986.

Honey, he wasn't just his FRIEND, he was his BOYFRIEND, John was GAY and lived in San Francisco while Viv lived in Connecticut.

Is Viv's sister Lou Ann still around? I know she did something as a tribute to Viv a while back.

When Viv was inducted, was Bill also included? And, if so, who accepted for HIM?

OMG, she's still around too? Didn't one of those two brothers just pass away? Just read that Tim Considine (The Third Son)had left the series after a fight with Don Fedderson and that Bill absolutely detested his replacement on the show, William Demarest.
