PARAGRAPH:

When I pass from this life I want to be remembered for several things. Before you pass there might be many questions that others may want to remember. This question challenges many. This is an inquiry that periodically comes up in our minds. The number of people who mourn our life ending help up know how good of a life you have. Or that would be important to many of us. Important to many of us.
