Do you have a specific way you try to live your life?
The last few years, I've tried to live my life in such a way that if I were to suddenly no longer be here, people would be glad they knew me and sorry that I was gone.
Is that narcissistic or stupid?
My cousin is gone and even though we haven't stayed together properly as a family (think just weddings and funerals type) it is wonderful to read comments on her obituary guest-book page that show people were really touched by her life and the impact she made in the brief time she was here. Too brief. She was only 58.
People were glad to know her and sorry she is gone.
