Lena Horne (Mrs. Lennie Hayton)

"Love Me or Leave Me."--song made famous by Lena Horne

Good Mourning, Widows.

Joy to you and me.

Today we welcome famous widow, African American, Singer, Lena Horne, wife of famous premier musical conductor, white Jewish American, Lennie Hayton, to our joy-ous club.

That's right, Widows, the club nobody wants to joy-n.

Lena was born June 30, 1917. She married Lennie Hayton in 1947. He died in 1971.

In an interview with Ebony Magazine in May 1980, Lena confessed she married Hayton to advance her career and to cross the "color line" in show business.

During their marriage, they faced enormous pressure as an inter-racial married couple.

Mourning Joy:

Q: What's a dead man's nose called?

A: The dead scenter

Mourning Quote:

"It's best to stay with friends." --from a business card Best Friends Pet Care

After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen.

Open your joy-nal.

Set the timer for ten.

The topic is: What's in my nose

Go ahead.

Write something.

I dare you.

Have a joy-filled day, Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
