Almost without thinking, when Penny passed I started to create a collection of songs that in some way fit with her memory and the love I held and will always hold for her.
Over time, they’ve helped me to cope, to hold on to the good and to let go of the pain and so maybe in some small way by sharing them with you, you might also find comfort in them.
Oddly and beautifully so, whenever these songs come on over the radio (or in a shop I’m in) I like to think she had a hand in it playing (it’s a nice thought right?)… A playlist for Penny
