When people think of me and they smile, I'm happy.

Well, very literally I have asked that my ashes are made into diamonds and these are turned into studs for my husbands dress shirt and cufflinks so that he can still take me out in the evenings. He will be earings for me if the other way around. So I guess we will remmeber each other often.

Otherwise, I guess I don't care if anyone else remembers me besides my family and friends, or at least that I do no harm that I am remembered for. I have lived in a home tht was my mother in laws for three years - she died over eight years ago but little has changed and we have been tied to it because the rest of the family (though now living in a different country) will in no way, change, rent or sell it. This is remberance but it is good or healthy. It would be better to let go of the physicality of her now, imho

I am most definitely a work in progress, and I doubt I will ever acheive everything I want, but I want to try! I try and live a moral life and to answer to my own actions, I try and impact as little on the planet as I can, I try and help people when I can and I speak out for what I believe in. If people remember those things, then I will be more than grateful.
In omnibus amor et iustum

When I joined the Navy I faced a crossroads. I had the opportunity to be stationed in Bremerton, Wa (close to home) or go to Connecticut. I didn't join the Navy to stay home, so I chose Connecticut. Being so far away from family forced me to grow up quick. I feel that I have seen and done a lot of things in my life so far.

The moral of the story is maybe you need a major life change like moving out of the PNW. Just something to think about. I'm sure Paul loves it there being a hunter and all, but he could back during hunting season, right?

When I'm gone I'm sure not many people will remember me at least not until it's time to eat. I work hard at trying to please people and do things for folks but this day and age not many appriciate it.Thats ok too at least I know what I have done. Most the folks that would remember me are already gone.
