"People must be remembered,Charlie.
Otherwise, it's as if they were never here at all.
All we are, are the people who remember us.
If we go away, and everybody forgets we were ever here,
it's as if we never were."
Sara to Charlie in the 1968 version of "Sweet November" with Sandy Dennis as Sara Deever and Anthony Newley as Charlie Blake. This is a wonderful film and worth finding.
