When you die, how do you want to be remembered?

Do you want people to think of you as the richest person in the world? As the most popular individual? Or the best in your field of work? I am not yet married and I still do not have any children. But I hope to get married in the near future and have my own kids. And when I die, I want to be remembered simply as a good daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend.

I think, first and foremost, for me I'd like to be remembered as a good husband and father.

That simple also, huh? Yes, I would rather be remembered dearly by the people who were very close to me than by people who know me based on my achievements. Thanks for replying, by the way. :)

I would want to be remembered as one who cares about others. Always willing to give a helping hand. Then I would want to be remembered as a great granny. Helping out the grandkids whenever I could. Having fun with them and just enjoying them. Also a good mom to my married son. Then a good wife to my husband. The material things in this life or not that important to me. Yes, I do realize that people have to work just to survive. I am talking over and beyond that. So above is what I wish people to remember me as.

I agree with you, the material things are not important when we are gone, for we cannot bring them in Heaven. What is more important is how our loved ones remember us. Thank you for your response.

Me, too. I want to be remembered as a good mother best of all, then as a good daughter, a good wife, a good sister, a good friend.
