Tell us about someone special who died this year

Each year we publish a series of short stories about a dozen people we've lost in the previous 12 months.

We called them our "Northern Lights."

Readers are invited to share photos and stories about special people in their lives who died this year.

Please send us an anecdote in 300 words or fewer and upload a photo, and we'll share them with our readers.
