About the Author

Diane Almeter Jones has been the keeper of a small box of letters and postcards of her grandmother’s from World War II for a number of years. An assignment in an Introduction to Theater class at Buffalo State College some eight years ago, forced her hand to find it and diligently read through them. Many script versions later, with many adjustments and complete rewrites, this freelance mom of three is proud to get Forget Me Not on the boards. Heartfelt thanks to her husband Tim, her children Jon, Anna, Harry, her honorary co-producers: Donna Bickell Almeter (mother) and Katie Bickell Blair (aunt), and all the supportive and life giving friends and teachers who have been great companions on this journey.

A special thanks to:
