Grandma Lena loved to read and do handwork. She wrote many poems often on the back of envelopes or greeting cards. In 1951 she sent her poem "Fairy Lace" to Five Star Music Masters in Boston where Mr. Lew Tobin composed a piano arrangement for it; returning it 'with pleasure... confident that she would be as pleased wtih it as he was.". We often wonder if it was ever performed.
