The goal of life is never to live forever rather the goal is to do or create something that will live forever. It is said, “Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.” So, we take the opportunity to remember the stars who have passed away but have left behind the reason to be alive in the hearts of many forever.

Here’s a list of stars we’ve had to say goodbye to in October
