In 2014, the world lost many impressive people – Eli Wallach, Joan Rivers, Ben Bradlee and others - who shaped our culture, and influenced our understanding of our world and ourselves.

As we begin another year, we recall the people who left us – and the impression they left on our hearts.

Who made a difference to you?
