I see my old friend from the Marine Corps, Tom Jones amongst the family members. I am sorry for your loss, Tom, where ever you may be. I know your grandmother was as precious to you as mine is to me. Such a wonderful and beautiful Lady was yours. I wish your family all the best. Your old friend Steve Steinmetz.

Ms.Horne was one of the most gracious people I have ever met.

Very good short video reports.

Rod your coverage of this has been SUPERB! I wish you were on TV, but I am very Thankful to have your blog to read.

Once again... RIP Queen Lena Horne! You went through so much, but NEVER lost your Grace, Class and Dignity! You are Legendary!

How heavy this loss and how fitting the tribute: DIAHANN, CICELY, LESLIE UGGAMS, VANESSA WILLIAMS...it's just beautiful that so many stopped, even after her time away from the spotlight, to stand up for the woman who stood up!

This really feels so heavy for some reason. I found her to be one of the most phenomenal people I have ever been in the presence of in my lifetime. HER AMAZING STORY ABOUT HOW COUNT BASIE PUSHED HER TO SING "STORMY WEATHER," HER SIGNATURE TUNE, WHEN SHE DIDN'T LIKE IT OR THINK SHE HAD THE UMPH TO SING IT, IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE STORIES TO RETELL.

I can say that I have had the chance to sit at the feet and in the presence of this dynamic diva of song, screen, stage and television and everything that class is is Lena Mary Calhoun Horne!

GOD REST YOUR SOUL. I CAN STILL SEE YOUR SMILE THROUGH MY TEARS!

What Isis and Rev Kev said.
Rod, the coverage here has been stellar, just outstanding. I'm so happy that people are remembering Lena Horne for who she was and what she accomplished. She was my idol in so many ways...I am just too done that she is gone. God rest her beautiful and miraculous soul.

Thank you for images and video snippets from the day of the funeral. Ms. Horne was an icon and American hero. She will be truly missed. The great ones are becoming less and less and we don't really have any current great ones to take their place.
