Who is Lucille?

A paternal instinct?
Negan? A paternal instinct? You could not remain insensitive to his smile and his sparkling eyes when he meets little Judith . Negan becomes totally gaga of the child and does not let go of a sole. And even though he was planning to kill Carl at the end of Season 7, he has a certain respect and attachment for this young boy.

A beautiful family picture, do not you think?
A certain respect for women?
