NY Times – The Living Appreciate the Passing

I just stumbled on this page from my Facebook Newsfeed (guilty, some of my best research comes from what other people post on their pages!) But, this comes at a convenient time as we remember the anniversary of my friend, Shana Kay, who passed away seven years from this past Tuesday, July 3.

This NY Times spread, The Lives They Loved, gave readers an opportunity to send images and descriptions of family & friends who have passed this year. The site shares about 300 images of individuals we lost this year along with a sentiment from close friends & family members.

Sometimes, it’s the short & simple lines that make the biggest impact:

My mother’s smile, she will always be the lighthouse that lights up my life.

This page proves to be a sentimental and significant piece of work that I hope NY Times will continue to create.

Shana, we miss you always and will never forget you.
