“Can I Be Remembered When I’m Gone?”
“They say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.”
When a person reflects on their life and thinks about what will happen when they pass, you may hear them say things such as “I want to be remembered,” or “remember me when I’m gone.”
This is completely normal. Everyone wants to be remembered when they pass away. The legacy that we leave behind and how other people remember us is a way to measure how many lives we touched. It’s important to us that our friends and family remember us when we leave this world, as we would remember them.
There are plenty of ways to ensure that you will be remembered for as long as possible when you’re gone, but you need to ask yourself “how do I want to be remembered?”
Take a seemingly unnecessary number of photos with your friends and family and have them developed or backed up on a USB drive. It may be annoying for the people in your life, but when you are gone, your loved ones will have visual reminders of all your memories together. They can pass your pictures down from generation to generation and you will always be remembered by your family and friends.
