My prayers and condolences go out to the family of the Legendary Ms. Lena Horne. Ms. Horne was a beautiful woman inside and out, she exuded strength, grace and intellect. It is sad however that the African American youth of today's generation will never know the numerous doors she opened for our race. If we as a race or an individual succeed in anything, we must remember to thank the Lena Horne's of the world who faced such adversity to pave the way for all African Americans. I salute you and I thank you Ms. Lena Horne for your tenacity and endurance of a lifetime commitment for the advancement of African Americans. God bless you, your spirit shall forever live on.

May 31, 2010
Please accept my deepest sympathy. I was able to see Ms Horne in her show on Broadway: "The Lady and Her Music" I believe was the title. Soon, God will grant those 'sleeping' to awaken in a restored Paradise earth (Matt 5:5 & Psalm 37:11,29). Until then may God guard YOUR hearts and your most precious memories of your dear love one.
May 31, 2010
May the Holy Scriptures promise brings comfort to the family of such an amazing person. One day soon, “no resident will say: I am sick” - Isaiah chapter 33 verse 24. We also yearn for the day when the aging process is reversed - Job chapter 33 verse 25. We yearn to see our dear loved ones again. Jesus promises, “the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out” -John chapter 5 verse 28 and 29.
May 30, 2010
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Remember

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

If Miss Horne ever knew that my brother who was with the 9th Air Force in France, Belgium and Germany in WWII carried a picture of her in his pocket throughout the whole war, she would know that there were many, many white people who loved her. Can you imagine the joy in heaven as she greets all the other music greats?

During the Christmas season of 2006, I travelled to New York to visit my daughters, and began a tradition with the showing of the films "Cabin in the Sky" and "Stormy Weather." My adult children had never seen either film, and showing those films created a tradition that continues to be part of the season. I presented my grandson with "The Wiz," who was 2 years old at the time. He loved it, and it brought back great memories for my daughters and me. Miss Horne was wonderful, and she set a standard that is no longer the fabric of many of our young performers today. May God bless her soul, and continue to keep her historical accomplishments alive in all of our hearts. She was pretty special, and one of a kind.
May 23, 2010
May the love and happiness you gave to the world be a eye opener to the world

Lena Horne was a joy to the soul. God gave her a job to do and she did it well. Her voice is like a harp with a beautiful melody. Her songs were those which..when Lena sang, everybody listened. There was always a message in her songs. I will miss her. You will have to hold on to the good times, the laughther, the smiles and just the joy she brought into a room. Hold your head up..that's where the Lord is.....
she's alright!

May 21, 2010
Being a classic Hollywood and movie fan, In choosing entertainment as my profession I can only say that the presence and talent Ms. Lena Horne played on screen and off was a big inspiration to me. She was not only a beauty to look at and a hypnotizing voice to hear sing, but also seemingly a good natured and very intelligent woman. I can only hope that she would say she had a life well lived when it was all said and done... And that regardless of the many sacrifices and trials that she undoubtly had to face and go through with race in Hollywood through her early career, that she held her head highly and spoke with honesty and dignity to herself and race. I pray that she may rest in peace, truly and honestly...

but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

May new generations discovery not just the beauty, but her fight for human rights, her many talents, class, strength,and what her life stood for .

My poem:

Now
as you have taken flight-
may you be respected more.
may a new generation
find the beauty of you
and of your music
and of what you endured...
but what your life stood for and what you meant !

With Strength and Dignity
was your walk and life
never settling for less….
You were a trailblazer for many-
You were a class act.
but your quiet tears, the lonely times !
all were made into stones so others
can walked upon them and
be all that they can be —
I love to hear you sing
and because …
I have learn “To Plant My Own Tree”
and believe in me because you said
“If You Believe”.

Lena Horne
What a class act for 92 years. Since the world has lost such a lovely lady, we need to make sure we introduce our children and grandchildren to her music and legacy. Though she sleeps with the Lord, her legacy will live on for many years to come.
May 18, 2010
Lena was a great lady and a great singer. I always loved to watch her when she appeared on TV, she had such great quality and her style was unreal, no one could come close. Her voice was so unique, you didn't have to see her face to know it was her, it was her voice that set her off from all others. It is sad to see such a great icon leave this earth. She is singing with the greatest of all choirs now in heaven.
May 18, 2010
The World has truly lost It's last Shining Star. "THE HORNE" as she was affectionately call in our neighborhood was love by us all and we ferciously protected her legacy and would not allow anyone to demean or try to dismantle her artistry. As a matter of fact on just the other day we were saying we hadn't seen you on the tube for a while. You will live on in our hearts and mind,sleep on Lena take your well deserved rest and we will meet you in the morning. Thank you for the great works. We"ll love you forever.
May 18, 2010
I KNOW YOU ARE GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN,REST IN PEACE.

My you rest in peace as you lived......

I loved Lena Horne. She is the reason why I wear my hair short. The first time I saw her she was beautiful with her hair bobbed. Her one woman show was awesome back in 1981 (Phila.) when she sang the up dated version of stormy weather,she put her heart and soul into that song.
My condolesences go out to all of her family. She will be greatly missed.
May 17, 2010
She was a legend to a African American little girls, to alway stand up for what is right. We will miss this great person. Valerie McClain, Nashville, TN.

She was such a beautiful person,with a amazing voice.May GOD BLESS her FAMILY.
May 17, 2010
Dear Family of Lena Horne: I am truly sad that Lena is gone, and I hope all efforts to keep her memory alive in American culture will be forever successful. I wanted you all to know how much your mother meant to me from the time I was a very young white girl growing up in Boston, when I first saw her in Stormy Weather. I was one of the few white people there and I went back six or seven times until the show closed. I never forgot her. In recent years my dream was to have it shown on the big screen again, maybe at the Wang in Boston, but I had no way of making that happen -- certainly not without her personal agreement and cooperation. I was hoping to get friends to help me with this idea, and try to reach her when she died. I have seen the later PBS film of her life 4 times now, but I want everyone to see the original Stormy Weather again on the big screen, and because so few white people ever did see it at the time, and because there was nothing else like it. And also because she was blacklisted, and Americans need to remember that, more often than they want to. Maybe someday it will still happen. Thank you for letting me tell you how much she means to me. I look forward to everything that may yet appear about her and her life and family. My best, Norma Swenson
May 17, 2010
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
May 17, 2010
One of the most beautiful women in this world - inside and out! She will be missed! We appreciate all she has done to put women, all women, regardless of race, on the map. She paved the way for us to be successful in the future! Thank You Lord for Lena Horne.

Be Still

Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

When I was 12-13 years old Lena Horne came to Savannah and visited with my best friend (her cousins) who lived 2 doors down. She was captivating and one of my best memories was the time she spent with us young girls showing us how to take care of our young black skin. She was the most beautiful lady and kind, the only thing she asked us to do was stop giggling and allow her her beauty rest and she will spend that time with us. What a lady, what a star...I'll never forget you...I'll always remember the spark you passed to me especially. You're still that magnificent Angel, you are so loved!!
May 17, 2010
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

May 17, 2010
May God comfort and bless the family of Miss Lena Horne. She was a possitive role model in my life of a proud black woman. I admired her participation in the civil rights movement, and her continued pursuit of her career in the entertainment field. I had the pleasure of taking my mom to see Miss Horne's concert "A One Woman Show" in Hoffman Estates,IL in the early 1980's. It was wonderful, and so was she! I also loved her role as the "Good Witch", singing in the movie "The Wiz". Thanks for the memories. I pray that many generations to come will know/learn of Miss Horne's
legacy.
May 17, 2010
I had the privilege and pleasure of seeing Lena Horne at the London Palladium in the 1960s. Her talent was amazing, but what I remember most was that she introduced by full name every single member of the Palladium musicians who were on stage with her. That's class!! Ms Horne will be missed, but she will be listened to by generations who appreciate the best in jazz vocals.
May 17, 2010
What a lovely lady you well surely be deeply missed! May God Bless the Family
May 17, 2010
I stood outside the local theater in Steubenville, Ohio, where i grew up for several hours to be able to buy a seat in one of the last 2 rows African Americans were allowed to sit in to see her sing in the movie "Stormy Weather" I have remembered her beauty and lovely voice all my life.I became a vocal music teacher as a result of being inspired by her outstanding abilities.
May 17, 2010
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
May 17, 2010
I can't believe you're not here. I"m looking at this picture of you...you are evergreen, ever beautiful. You made me proud to be a black woman, regardless of how fair my skin is. I am still a black woman. You've always been a part of my life, your movies, your voice, just you. Now to try and explain to my daughters that their way is smoothed out because of your hard work, dedication, pride and love. We love you, Ms. Horne
May 17, 2010
I was born in 1950 in the south. I had never heard of Lena Horne until I came north to live in 1969. What a shame that I did not get to experience who she was and what she contributed to America earlier in my life. To God be the Glory that she lived to be 92 years old and now the world knows Lena Horne. I hope her life will be written in our history books in the near future. Brenda Roach (Washington, DC)

Ms. Horne, I can remember and love to watch the episode where you played yourself on Sanford and Son. I could also see the love that "Fred" had for you. I thank you for making a difference in my life, enduring the loss of your father, husband, and your son. You were a strong black woman who deserved much praise. God bless your daughter, family, and friends. Your memories will live on in our hearts.

"Friends of our God, though they may pass away, will never be forsaken. All those asleep who in God's memory stay, from death they will awaken." It is always sad when a love one passes away. Ms. Horne lived a long and beautiful life. She was an inspiration to many. May the family and friends find peace and comfort in knowing God cares for you and loves you.
May 17, 2010
I am confident that an earth-wide resurrection will take place as promised at Revelation 21:3, 4 as well as John 5:28, 29. Both scriptures assure us that our loss is temporary. Though grief is experienced today, it is not permanent! May you all take comfort in the Holy Scriptures.
May 17, 2010
We are so sorry for your loss. Ms Horne has won our hearts for many years and continues to do so. May you find comfort and peace from your precious memories. Our prayers are with all of you.
May 17, 2010

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

What a legendary WOMAN who worked hard to earn the title of being classic. I can only imagine what it was like to fit in an "old" society of being "black, but not black" and appearing "white,but not white".

to the Horne Family;
Thank you for sharing your Lena with us; the world. We know her for her inner beauty she let glow through her outter beauty. She has mesmerized at least four generations of our family not just as an entertainer, but as an activist, and a strong black woman of character. Her longevity substantiates that. May God continue to love and keep you. Remember, if Lena is with God, and God has promised to always be with us- she will never be far away. It gets better.
God bless you,

I am so at a lost for words for the loss of MS. HORNE, as she is the eternal picture of EARLY HOLLYWOOD BEAUTY for BLACKS in THE WORLD OVER. I read about her 'HOLLYWOOD YEARS' and I see in their 'eyes' MS. HORNE did not exist for the 'SILVER SCREEN' . They were and always will be wrong BLACK AMERICA has her as the EPTIOME of BEAUTY and her SCREEN is EVERY STAGE,TV she has ever performed on her grace, integrity, humility and love will be missed forever and never FORGOTTEN. LOVE ALWAYS, VICKY FULLER

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Ms Lena Horne was a Black actress who was beautiful in a time when Black people needed an endorsement of beauty. She was a talented and dignified Black Woman of films during the late 30s and 40s when Black was not considered beautiful or popular. Ms Horne was a celebrated movie star, yet, a Civil Rights Warrior. She made "us" proud of whom we are! Thus, we are saddened by her loss. But, what a glorious life she had even through many trials and tribulations during such a challenging era. She taught us well. Thank you, Dear Lord, for this lovely, classy lady! Many prayers of comfort to her family!
May 15, 2010

A Reminiscence

YES, thou art gone! and never more
Thy sunny smile shall gladden me;
But I may pass the old church door,
And pace the floor that covers thee.

May stand upon the cold, damp stone,
And think that, frozen, lies below
The lightest heart that I have known,
The kindest I shall ever know.

Yet, though I cannot see thee more,
'Tis still a comfort to have seen;
And though thy transient life is o'er,
'Tis sweet to think that thou hast been;

To think a soul so near divine,
Within a form so angel fair,
United to a heart like thine,
Has gladdened once our humble sphere.

The road of life may take us where we do not care to go- up rocky paths, down darkened trails, our steps unsure and slow.
But our dear Lord extends His hand to hold, to help, to guide us. We never have to feel alone, for He walks close beside us.
May you find strength in God's presence at this time, and may His love be your comfort.
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Psalm 23:4

My deep condolences to the whole family of the Late Great Ms Lena Horne, for your loss.

She had a God-given talent. She personified dignity and class. It's sad to think that no matter who we are in life, death is the enemy. What a wonderful time in the future, when all people, can benefit from the hope the Bible holds out, that "He will swallow up death forever...."--Isaiah 25:8.

I remember Shirley Caesar used to sing this song called "The Church is in Mourning." All I can think when I read of Mrs. Horne's expiring was the Church is in mourning because another soldier is gone.....home. God is getting His heavenly army ready so sister Lena was called to join that army. Now she's a soldier in the army of the Lord.

To the family of Lena Horne:

Wow you are so fortunate to have had such a beautiful & talented woman in your lives. She has done so many wonderful things and helped many people. The bible tells us that the day of death is better than the day of one's being born. We make names for ourselves as we live than we could ever do when we are born. Some fill their lives with accomplishments, success and good & noble deeds. It is so important that we use our lives to the best of our ability and with a noble and worthy purpose. We must know who we are and why we are here. The bible shows us what each of us must do. John 17:3. Even though we die due to sin and imperfection, we are offered hope to have a chance to live again. Rev. 21:3,4. So remember, she is only sleeping and only God has the power to awaken her from that sleep. My thoughts and powers be with your family at this time loss.

I had the opportunity to see Ms. Horne's one woman show at Arizona State University. Her show was a birthday gift to me by my friend Julia, a fellow music teacher and performer who had seen her in shows many times and wanted me to see this legend. I'm glad I had that opportunity because Ms. Horne was fabulous in her show. Most of the audience was female and one could feel the emotional response to Ms. Horne's story. She received a well deserved standing ovation that night.

Thank you, God for Ms. Horne's legacy as an artist and an activist, first to Afro American people and then to the rest of the world. God bless and keep in a special way the Lena Horne family.

May 12, 2010
You think of enduring wen you think of Lena Horne. That's why it was such a shock we we learned of her death. Lena Horne was the epitome of beauty and grace.

We are so sorry to see her gone. Her body of work will live on and what a body of work that was. Death does not discriminate however.
Even legends have to die. Death is man's greatest enemy.

We know that she is in God's memory. He is the one who has power over even death.

I worked in Robinson's in Santa Barbara, and I was on one side of a wall of Christmas cards, and heard the voice speaking on the other side. Recognizing the sound I walked around and there she was,so elegant and beautiful, with that angel/shedevil voice. The world has lost a treasure, but her legend will live forever for all of us lucky enough to see and hear the lady Lena Horne.

the people have lost a beautiful woman with a beautiful voice
May 12, 2010
I was on a train traveling from Illinois to California many years ago and Lena Horne was also a passenger but remained secluded in her berth. Her security men would come in the dining car and order food for her. I regretfully never got to see her except briefly when she was picked up by a limo outside the train station in Los Angeles. She was a great performer and will be missed by many. Her music will live on for a long, long time. Rest in peace, Ms. Horne.
My condolences to the family. Sincerely,
May 12, 2010
Good-bye pretty lady.
May 12, 2010
May God bless and welcome you, class that have never being duplicated.
May 12, 2010
I am young, so I was not yet born with Ms. Horne starting making her tremendous impact on the entertainment industry, but I can see the fine results. She epitomized dignity and class and her loss is a great one. It's so sad that no matter who we are in life, death is still an enemy. What a wonderful time it will be when all of us, rich or poor, young or old, can benefit from the grand hope the Bible holds out, that "God will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore" (Rev. 21:3).
May 12, 2010

Yesterday I shed a tear, for a part of the soundtrack and videography of my life has passed. Mrs. Lena Horne, how many ways are there to say how much you were and are cherished by myself and my family... I am the middle girl of five girls and I and a sister of mine spoke your name less than a month ago and said a prayer for you, wondering where you were in this world and wishing you the best while just being thankful that you were still here. So many of this generation dont know the magnitude of who you really were but we will keep you, your spirit and essence alive through teaching who you were. There is nothing I could really say to express the magnitude of love I have for you and the loss I feel right now. We have really been blessed to have had you and we are all simply thankful that in our lifetime, we were lucky enough not to have missed yours. Take your bow Mrs. Lena Horne, here is your standing ovation.
May 11, 2010
She was one of a kind! My late husband and I were fortunate to be able to attend A Lady and Her Music. Her talent was limitless. She will be missed, but forever live in our hearts.

May 11, 2010
May God bless the Horne family. Ms. Horne was beautiful, both in body and spirit. Although I never met her personally, her interviews that were made public never failed to show her compassionate spirit and her determination to make it in spite of the odds against her. I greatly admire that about her. She could have taken the easy way out by backing down on her principles, but she instead chose to fight racism for all of us! Thank you, Ms. Horne.
May 11, 2010
Your legacy, life and now your history we have to treasure, and reflect. So many sensational moments of your public life, shined a spotlight on progress to keep walking and achieve. I have adored you, since I first learned of you.

You LIVED LIFE! Life didn't just live you.

Watching you taught me how to raise my head and hold my head up...no matter the day.

Beautiful, yet classy is all that I can say about the glorious Lena Horne. Her voice was like silk, and her personality must have been exceptional. I will miss you and I pray that God will keep you under his protective wings. Rest in Peace
May 11, 2010
Growing up in St. Louis in the 1940s in a segregated world Lena Horne was the one lady of her race everyone of every color regarded as a true star, a movie idol, an unsurpassable singer, a glamour symbol, plus smart, articulate and feisty. She paved the way for those to come who reaped the benefits of the mistreatment she put up with for their sake. Later she became a symbol of the battle for racial equality and dignity, a political activist, a servant for the good of the country. Always she was beautiful, poised, classy and shiningly intelligent. Her life was long and heroic. For many of us, white and black, male and female, she represented a role model. Bless her memory forever because above all else, perhaps unknowingly, she was a teacher.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Horne family in their time of grief.
For many years, many people looked up to Ms. Horne, and was proud of her for her success as a black woman. However, at times like these,
drawing close to God in prayer is what will "sustain you." (Psalm 55:22) I hope this will bring the family a measure of comfort.

Sarah Vaughn has left us. Ella Fitzgerald has left us. And now, Ms. Lena Horne has left us. But, alas beloved, let us not weep, for they are not really gone - but merely asleep. Let us all be quite, quite thankful to our Lord - Jesus the Christ, for allowing them to walk amongst us making our lives a little more resilient, brighter and richer through their craft of music and song.

May the Eternal Love of our Lord forever shine on these three ladies who now have inherited their infinite reward...

Peace be with them...
May 11, 2010
Loved you madly.

To Family Members: I remember when Miss Horne came to San Antonio and told in such a delightful way the story of how Max Factor used her (Horne's) make up on Ava Gardner for the role in Show Boat.
She told it in such a humorous fashion but one got the message that segregation was no joke. I also saw her in The Wiz on Broadway. A great lady to be emulated. May the family be comforted in the knowledge that many regarded her with adoration and affection.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...

but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.

Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.



Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.

Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.

That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,

God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."



It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.

As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.

I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.

There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."



God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.

And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.

And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.

God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.



When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years

because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.

But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.

Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.



I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.

But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.

But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.

I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.



There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;

but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.

It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...

that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.



If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,

then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."

And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,

knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.



So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,

just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.

When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;

I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.



And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,

remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

I watched her on TV as a white child in the 60s...I NEVER saw her as the pretty "black" lady. I saw a beautiful, classy woman that could just SING (and tell a joke). The world is now much poorer and less vibrant for her loss.

I thank you for so many years of wonderful music, Miss Horne. I hope you were able to put all that racist ignorance behind you as most people will remember you only as an accomplished, beautiful singer who gave us skilled, original interpretations of some of the greatest American song classics. You deserved your success and will be well-remembered. As for those who treated you so badly because of your race, nobody will even know they were here! Rest in peace, lovely lady. You have earned it.

Mrs. Horne was great at her work. I am sure she was a lovely individual. Rev. 21:3,4 says,"With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.

To The Family of Lena Horne:

Thank you for sharing your Mother with us. I cannot tell you how much of a fan I was of her.

Her one-woman show: fantastic! My favorite album: "Lena: A New Album": Wonderful!

I so appreciate all that your Mother experienced in order to make life better for Black people -- all people, for that matter. And that she was so accessible to journalists makes her even more memorable.

We all can be thankful that God blessed us with Lena Horne.

"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."

I WAS JUST A KID OF 9-YEARS IN 1943 WHEN MY FATHER'S
oldest brother, Jimmy brought me to a theater in the east end of downtown Youngstown that was either owned and/or operated by African-Americans. I well remember only seeing "black" faces in the audience when Uncle Jimmy treated me on a Sunday afternoon to a movie with an all Black cast that featured the singing of the beautiful Lena Horne and the big band of Cab Calloway. It was a very special day for me and led to my love of jazz music.
May 10, 2010

To Ms. Horne's family. I took down the book, The Hornes, An American Family today and looked for the Truman inaugural picture in the pages of the book. My mother, Kay DeWitt, was a performer in Washington. She is standing next to Gene Kelly. One of my mother's favorite stories was of sharing a dressing room with your mom in the late 1940's at a show they were both in in D.C.. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Our mom has also passed away but the inaugural troup picture has a prominent place on our wall. John and Karen (DeWitt) Griffith, Mike and Julie (DeWitt) Goss and Dana and Barb DeWitt.

Music, when soft voices die

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory—
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heaped for the beloved's bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.

By Percy Bysshe Shelley

May 10, 2010
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Although I heard Of Lena Horne in my very young youth, I had not heard any of her records until I was in my 20's. I was almost 30 before I found her "STORMY WEATHER" 78RPM. As one of four discs of the RCA Victor album, "Torch Songs". It was a blessing to hear the her treatments of other songs.
Too bad Berry Gordy did not try to get her with Motown during the time he owned it. I feel if she had song some SOUL - R&B with her standards, she would have attracted more youth sooner.
Her "Live At The Waldorf Astoria" on RCA Victor recorded January, 1957, did not move me as much as her 1940's songs. I just play the 78's more than the 33's. I have yet to see any 45rpms of her work. Unfortunately, reissues and bootlegs will be coming out the woodwork soon.
I am unaware if she tried disco.
I hear her mostly featured on the program carried by NPR: "Blues Before Sunrise"
Locally, I will hear her songs periodically on WFOS 88.7 FM and on "Saturday Night Fish Fry" carried on WHRV 89.5 FM.
No AM stations are carrying any Lena Horne in the Hampton Roads broadcast area (unfortunately!).
A lot of the music recorded between 1895 through 1965 that did not reach the top 40 seems to be shamefully discarded.

I will add a photo of the album at a later entry.

To the family of the late Lena Horne

We were sorry to hear of her death. She was a icon and pioneer for African Americans actresses and singers. She brought grace, style and elegance to the stage.

May the following words be a condolence to you



It’s God’s Will And We Must Comply
By: Charles G. Turner, Sr.


Life is uncertain,
But as sure as we are born one day we must die
Sometimes we sit and wonder why
The fact is it’s God’s will and we must comply.

Throughout our lives we live through happiness and sadness
And many toils and strife
And when our earthly life is over we enter into our “eternal life”

Whenever a loved one or friend makes their earthly depart
It is natural for it to bring hurt and sorrow to our heart
And to deal with our loss we grieve, mourn, and cry
In all essence we must remember this is God’s will and we must all comply

For those of us that are left behind
We must cherish the special memories
And keep them all in mind
Just remember it is not for us to question why we have to die
It’s God’s will and we all have to comply.

May God Bless and comfort all of you
May 10, 2010
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
May 10, 2010
I was fortunate to be old enough to follow her lustrous career, she was a gifted lady. Her talent touched a many souls; we thank God for lending her to us for a season. May the family be strenghtened while the God off peace mend your broken hearts.

Rest in Peace, Lena. You were more than a great voice and a talented actress, you were a civil right activist, and that took courage. You could have easily enjoyed your success hidden behind your fair skin and straight hair, but instead you acknowledged you were accepted by whites, not because of your talent, but, because you looked the way you did. Thank you maam, you were a true soldier and will be missed.

Miss Lena Horne was a great LADY.She inspired many and me in particular in so many, many ways. I recall as a younster, sudying about her during what was then called "Negro History Week". I admired and followed her career from that point forward.
My thoughts and prayers are with her family. SHE WILL BE MISSED BY MANY.

Mrs. Horne was an inpiration to all black woman. Beautiful yet still able to relate to others. Her grace and brillant smile will be missed by all that admired her. To be blessed by God with 92 years says volumes for her character and love for others and they for her. Be blessed family and sweet memories.

From the first time I saw her face, heard her sing, and spoke to her people, I knew she was someone I wanted to be a role model in my life. It was befitting for our Lord to take her home on Mother's Day because she was the Mother of so many barrier breakers in our history. Thank You for existing in my life time and my prayers are with her family.

To the Family of Ms. Horne:
I give you my condolence during your time of bereavement. Ms. Horne was in the generation of my grandparents who always told stories of her accomplishments. Truly, America has lost a proud pioneer of civil rights, who would not compromise her principles for the advancement of her career; but she wanted to see justice prevail for African Americans and all American Citizens.
Sincerely,

Music, when soft voices die

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory—
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heaped for the beloved's bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.

Ms. Lena Horne was a legend in her time, and she worked very hard for the advancement of african-americans. She will be greatly missed. But I do feel very blessed to have someone so great in my lifetime!
May 10, 2010
I have been a fan of Lena Horne since I was 4 years old and listened to her voice on the records my grandmother played. She was a phenomenal singer and actress and her songs are the soundtrack to my life. I once said, years ago as a teenager, that when she dies, I'll wear black for a month. Look down on me Lena, because I've begun to keep my promise!

Ms. Horne was such a staple in our American society, that it hardly seems real that she is out of our presence. I grew up seeing her on television, and listening to her stories of what she experienced as an actress. She endured so much. But, she did not let that stop her. God blessed her with inner beauty, as well as outer beauty. She was simply ageless. I really liked her a lot. We have lost so many great giants within the last year. May God continue to bless her family and her legacy that will live on for centuries to come.
May 10, 2010
