How Can I Be Remembered After Death?
A question that plagues many of us is, “How do I want to be remembered?” Just after we’ve lost someone we know, this question takes an especially central position in the forefront of our minds.
Perhaps we attend a funeral, memorial service, wake, or another event to mourn the passing of someone we know. We observe the other people there, see how they’re behaving, look around at the photos and other sentimental props, and exchange stories with others about the person we’ve lost.
No matter what culture you come from, everybody has a different way of mourning their dead. Most cultures hold some kind of special event to celebrate the life of the person who’s passed, which is attended by people who knew and cared about that person.
Attending one of these events always makes me ponder what I want to be remembered for. As I’m currently remembering someone else, my mind always wanders to how I want to be remembered when it’s my turn to be mourned.
Determine How You’ll Be Remembered
At so many of the funerals I’ve attended, the deceased person didn’t leave any instructions or provide any guidance to their loved ones for how exactly they wished to be remembered.
It’s left in someone else’s hand to use their best judgment and plan the best memorial service they possibly can, but there’s no substitute for being remembered the way you want to be remembered.
This is why websites like Peoplepedia are so important – and it may not be an aspect you’ve considered before.
Peoplepedia allows you to determine how you’ll be remembered after death.
How Do I Want to Be Remembered?
When I’m working on my Peoplepedia profile, I know that I’m leaving behind a legacy which will determine what I want to be remembered for. There will be no guesswork after I pass. It will all be there for my family and friends to find. They will know how I want to be remembered – how I want to be memorialized.
This, to me, is a method of preserving myself after death. I don’t leave my life to be summed up by someone who didn’t live it – I write my own reflections and musings so that there’s never any doubt about who I was and how I want to be remembered.
What I want to be remembered for is spelled out clearly and in my own words. I could even leave instructions for how I want my funeral to be conducted. Maybe I want a passage from my Peoplepedia profile to be read aloud. Maybe I want a portion of my legacy to be shared with all those who knew me.
