ever imagined what would happen after you are dead?? do you think your loved ones will just forget about you?? if no..how would you like to be remembered?? we all tend to forget that we are all going to die one day or the other and thats what really makes us commit all the sins we do. we intentionally or unintentionally hurt our loved and close ones and dont even care to appologize even after realizing our fault. we dont care to share time and love as we get busy in building up a so called successful life not realising is that what we will take along with us is not the money, the property or the power...but the love and blessings of the our survivors.

now people can remember you in photo video and electronic audio if you are rich enough you can donate and get buildings named after you

I don't worry about it much? I have a husband and grown kids and if I die before them, then they'll remember me while they are here. But as far as after that..I am not concerned with anyone other than the people I actually love remembering me. I am here to love my family and pass down my genetics to me descendents. I do not worry abut the sin thing. I just try to live a simple life? But I am human and not perfect..but try not to hurt people. Nope..couldn't care less after my kids are gone about being remembered. That's how it goes. -Nature moves on! (maybe a few stories will be remembered and passed down. that's good enough. I say..after I die, dig a hole, kick me in and go ON with your lives and be happy!)

I think every person on this Earth matters to some one. At least one other person. Regardless of what type of life they have led. The kinder you are and the more you have reached out to others, the greater impact you will have on those you leave behind. I think about my father and my grandmother the most. They were such icons in my life. I am still overwhelmed when I realize how much they meant to me, how many other people's lives they impacted and how much they shaped who I am and even who my children are. My mother is still with me, but as I have gotten older, I realize the same thing about her and I know I will deeply miss her as well. I think because they made a conscious effort to positively impact our lives that there sins and short comings just don't matter. I think they fulfilled God's purpose for them in life. I think more people do appreciate their loved ones than those that take them for granted.

Hi asifthakur, You are so right that we are all leaving here someday and also about what is best to leave behind. I can't imagine wanting to leave a lot of money for family members to fight over. We will be remembered for a little while, but most of us will soon be forgotten. I hope that the memories that others have of me will be good memories. Blessings

When I die, I believe my friends and family will mourn the loss for a time, then move on. I am sure would love to remembered as a best friend, sister, aunt, cousin,and a good teacher. I believe my past sins will be gone, as it stated in bible taht when we die, our sins are forgiven. I probably will be happy to hear and see my friends again when I am resurrected. I know a lot of people believe they are going to heaven no matter how bad or good they been, but they would need to accept the fact only 144,000 people go to heaven, they been chosen by god and jesus to go there, if we are not of the group we should be thankful that we are to live in a new earth, as stated in Psalms 37:9-11,29 Bad people wont be there to cause trouble, and our bodies will be made perfect. No more sickness,deafness,crying,pain,mourning , we will be really happy and thankful people.

When I die life will go on without me. I think people who knew me, especially my family members will remember me and think of me fondly. I hope when they think of me they will think of Jesus Christ, know that I am with him and that we'll have a great reunion someday in his kingdom.

Hi asifthakur! Hopefully my love ones will remember me. My dad passed 15 years ago, and i still remember him, he was a loving,caring, hardworking dad, and he raised us well.He was a friend to everyone he came across. I've always tried to emulate my dad and raise my kids the way he raised us, and to treat people the way i would want to be treated. So i hope i'm remembered the same way. I do agree that the greatest success one can have, is by impacting peoples lives in a positive way, because everything else will be disbursed of in one way or another. But the love that people have for you will forever live on even after you're gone.
