    I thought of honoring her on my blog, too, but… it was a crazy day yesterday. In any case, she was a Lady. πŸ’• RIP!

      Indeed, R.I.P.

      My mother had an old LP record album with all of Vera Lynn’s wartime songs on it which she played quite often.

      With Vera Lynn’s passing, I feel a part of my childhood is gone.

      The memories of the songs on that record.

    R.I.P but she sounds like a lovely light in the darkest time.
