Additional Information:
"She had poetry and music in her soul -- while she washed clothes or scrubbed the kitchen floor, one of the twins sat in 'the corner that's clean' and kept score on a brown paper bag of the dozens of songs she sang, one after the other. She 'composed' some as she went along."
