Lucianne Goldberg has passed on at the age of 87. She lived a long and very interesting life. It’s always sad when someone dies, but we all will someday die, and I hope her death was an easy one.
The site, lucianne.com, is a daily visit for me. Always something interesting to read about. On a personal level, that site is where those of us who founded The Last Refuge gathered together on February 1, 2011 to decide what to do next. The rest is history.

Dear L Dotters.
We are heartbroken. Our beloved Lucianne passed away peacefully and surrounded by loved ones in her own home, the way she wanted. But she has left a hole in our lives that we can never fill completely.
Lucianne was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She was also a patriot who expressed her love of this country with both political fierceness and penetrating wit.
In that part of her world this site became her home, her community, and her voice. She also wanted Lucianne.com to endure and she made arrangements that it would do so – just as it has for the past 25 years. The same loyal staff, the same policies, and the same principles. ( And before you ask, her son Jonah will not be involved.
She loved her son without reservation, but they saw politics differently from time to time. So, we’ve worked it out.
The Lucianne.com team will stay on and Jonah will stay out of it.)
Obviously, no one can replace Lucianne. But we can carry-on in
her name. We’re not asking you to send money or make donations to anything. We’re just asking you to stick around. We think that’s the best way to honor and keep her memory alive.
Please keep her light shining.
