Gwendolyn Brooks (Mrs. Henry Blakely II)

"Thin gin. We Jazz June. We Die soon." --Gwendolyn Brooks
Good Mourning Widows.
Joy to you and me.
Today we welcome famous widow US writer/poet Gwendolyn Brooks wife of famous poet Henry Blakely II to our joy-ous club.
Henry died in 1996. He was age 79.
Gwendolyn died 4 years later on December 3, 2000, with a pen in her hand surrounded by her books. She was the first African-American to win a Pulitzer prize. During her lifetime she received over 70 honorary awards.
Mourning Joy:
Q: Why are mosquitos so annoying?
A: Because they get under our skin.
Mourning Quote:
"Our show is about living life more honest and more fully. Not to leave the I'm sorry's and the I-love-yous until too late." --Jennifer Love Hewitt
After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen.
Write something.
Go ahead.
I dare you.
Have a joy-filled day Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
