It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it...

God, she was fabulous! So sad to hear that she is no longer with us. Thank you for reminding us the depth of her talent.

"No. That's Lena Baby."

And that from a classical music fan. She was one of the greats and oh-so-very elegant.
