The tragic news has come that Vera Lynn has died. May she rest in peace.
I feel such sadness. She was a symbol of hope and freedom and kept the spirits going. Her songs and her smile shall never be forgotten.
Vera Lynn is forever our nations sweetheart, the light in darkness and played her part in the war. She deserves a statue.
From wonderful music to wonderful kindness did she inspire this nation and keep the morale up.
She was weaved into the tapestry of this nation and into our hearts with beautiful motivating and beautiful songs which still get played and enjoyed even till this day.
It is like the last of old England has gone and today the nation mourns its sweetheart.
Great songs such as we’ll meet again, Berkeley Square, And bluebirds over the White cliffs of Dover have kept us connected to freedom and romance.
Looking back her songs make the wartime a romantic time when love was in jeopardy she kept the light of love and romance burning.
Thankyou so much Vera for everything you did and the wonderful songs you sung and you are our sweetheart forever.
Goodbye our sweetheart – we’ll meet again…
Dame Vera Lynn may you rest in peace…
