Looking back at the men and women we lost in 2014 one word comes to mind: icons.
Not only did we lose the smoldering Lauren Bacall, an icon of the silver screen, but we also lost Elaine Stritch, Joan Rivers and Robin Williams all comedy icons in their own right.
Metro would like to use this article as a final rememberance of some of the bright lights that went out this year.
