I don't mean for this to be a morbid blog or anything of the sort. Still, the fact is that everyone is going to die one day. We never know when that time may be. My hope is that it's a really long time away for any of us and we get to enjoy life to the fullest until that day.

However..some day when you have died and are gone from this earth, what is the one thing that you would like for people to say about you?
Or how would you like to be remembered?

Would they say that now?

I want to be remembered as a person you didn't meet every day in life that had so much passion and with a spark in his eye that made you want to be just like him in terms of being a leader and looking for the good things in life thriving to be the best they could be. A great loving father that went out of his way to assure his daughter the much needed love and opportunity to be successful in life. Had a great zest for life and always treated people with respect. A family man who loved his family with very strong morals. Someone with a weird sense of humor, but always drew a laugh when needed. A Christian with Christ in his heart. A man who had a very special place in his heart for animals that tried to save and help and that he encountered in life.

I suspect if I died today this is what my friends (Local friends) would say...

A real loner
Tough
Independent
Outspoken
Friendly and fun but keeps her distance
Easy to get to know but not easy to get close to
Intelligent
Creative
A real homebody who loved making a home
Ornery
Had an occasional wild streak
Didn't take any shit from anyone
Hard worker
dependable
trustworthy
honest to the bone

My family would say pretty much the same but they know my softer side.

Helpful
always there
loving
generous
big hearted
tender hearted
offbeat sense of humor
occasionally flamboyant in behavior and/or dress



Well fuck...I sound too good to be true. But that's all me....with a little moodiness and temper thrown in on the side.

I went to a major league baseball game a few years ago. As we were crossing the parking lot, there was a guy on the corner preaching and holding a sign with a biblical reference. He looked at me and said, "Sir, what is going to happen to you if you die without knowing Jesus?"
I paused for a second, then replied, "Well, if you didn't cremate or bury me fairly soon, I'd probably start stinking."

How I would like to be remembered and how I will be remembered will be two different things. How I, or anyone, will be remembered will depend upon who you ask. For example, what one person considers funny, another considers obnoxious.

In writing this, I paused for a moment and thought about some people I knew that had passed on. These people were not real close friends or family. As I remembered them, I recalled shared events and times with my thoughts of them more as descriptions similar to what people give of someone to the police of a homicide victim on Law & Order.

Yup! We are all gonna die, no way around that. The two constants are death and taxes.....cant remember who said that. Anyway....I guess I would like to be remembered as fun, kinda crazy, and someone who gave a shit about the world.

Ahhh DKW....

He was a wicked fucker with a silly streak...but the heart of a Dragon...capable of filling an ocean with love...but also could he fill it with justice and vengeance for anyone who dared harm anyone he cared about. He fought long hard and often in the interests of fairness for all...but he never suffered fools and trolls at ALL. Raise a glass and toast him into Valhalla, where the Valkyries shall surely sing his praises unto eternity...

But in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.
