If thou didst ever hold me in thy heart, absent thee from felicity a while, and in this harsh world draw thy breath in pain to tell my story. - William Shakespeare, Hamlet|
mortui vivos docent: the living learn from the dead
"There be of them, that have left a name behind them, that their praises might be reported...And some there be, which have no memorial; who are perished, as though they had never been; and are become as though they had never been born; and their children after them." -- Apocrypha: Sirach Chapter 44 (aka Ecclesiaticus), 2nd century B.C.
Every soul's story deserves to be remembered by as many people as possible for as long as possible, whether a life story or a mere scrap of information about what they looked like or who they loved. As long as someone remembers the departed, they are still "alive."
