  • That I love the outdoors, that I am a hard worker and great cook. That I taught them to appreciate music and the arts and that we went to concerts and the theater together. I'd want them to continue our family traditions as I have and to be compassionate towards others and do what you love because life may end tomorrow.

  • Not one particular thing, I just hope they can remember me and love me half as much as I admired my own grandmother. She was a strong, confident, amazing mother and I can only hope my kids and grandkids look back on me the same way. That is what I work towards.

  • I hope they remember I was a hoot! I want them to love life, be responsible but never take the bad life throws at them personally. It's all good.

  • I want them to remember me as ambitious. I think that is a trait that can be passed down. In a time where there is so much laziness around us, I think it is important to have someone in your life who you have witnessed work hard and have that work pay that is what I try to be.

  • I hope my kids and (one day) grandkids will remember the JOY they brought to me. That when they think of me they don't dwell on whatever hard times we may have had. I don't dwell on the bad and I hope I've past that on to them..... I want them to know, without a doubt, that my life is/was full of love and that their love was the most important thing in the world to me.
