About the Book
" Forget Them Not" is a celebration of people who have left this world for the next. Along with photographs of artists, actors, family members, writers, dancers, celebrities, artisans, teachers and Smitty The Dog, there are short stories or bios about each person and when possible a sample of each person's art/writing or medium. This book of photographs captures each person in black & white and reminds us of our common connection, that each of us will leave this world when our time has come.
The purpose of this book is to not only celebrate those who've gone before but to remember to Forget Them Not.
