There is a poignancy about the timing of Vera Lynn’s passing: the songs she sang, of encouragement and hope, and above all, memories invoked.
We are in difficult and unprecedented times. Her songs and messages of hope eighty years ago are acutely relevant today.
Everybody knows her story, no introduction required, no matter ones age. Everyone will know, or will have known, someone who will have been touched by her in some way.
She warmed the hearts of our parents and our grandparents, and she will continue to warm the hearts of many for decades to come.
