As unpleasant as it is to think about it, what do you think people would say about you after you died? How would your friends and family think of you after you are gone? We all like to think people would say good things in remembrance, but many of us can claim to know one or two people (relatives or not) that have passed on and we never think of, speak of or remember them fondly.
I’m sure if I kicked it today there are at least two or three folks that would probably be like*** “Jolly Roger died? Well, he was a jerk so I don’t feel too bad about it.”***. well, to be honest, the few folks I know who would probably say that are pretty much my enemies anyway.
Maybe I’m fortunate. My wife says she’d be devastated if I died. One of my friends here told me she’d be utterly crushed if I bit the big one. she was especially upset when i had surgery a year ago. My best friend from high school says he’d make it a point to play Pink Floyd at my wake.
I had a good friend that died about 14 years ago, and I still think of her constantly. She was really one of the best people I have ever met. She was pretty much unbelievably kind, caring and smart and the world is a bit darker without her in it. Just knowing her made me a better person. I know the world will go on when i buy the farm. I just hope that the people I leave behind can at least think a few good things about me once in awhile…but who knows…maybe I really am a jerk!
what do you think people say about you when your gone?
