So, this is a solo podcast, and without a doubt the hardest one I have ever had to do. It is a memorial tribute to my dear friend, Penny Hollick. She was one of the strongest, bravest, and beautiful souls that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. She lost her fight to cancer Monday, Feb 24, 2020. A day that I will never forget.
I did this podcast so I could share a bit of my friend with you all, and would really appreciate you having a listen. It is not too long.
Thank you, and until next time, take care and be well.
