" Forget Them Not: A Celebration Of Those Who've Gone Before"
" 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.
