Every man or woman leaves behind a legacy, good or bad. Once gone, he is remembered for it. Some die of natural causes, some are killed or assassinated and some just disappear and never come back again.

Life is short and unpredictable. The bitter tragedy of human life is that it is all too fragile, and these very photos are a good reminder of our own mortality.
