How Do You Want To Be Remembered?

How I want to be remembered:
Oh, she was so strong and so brave. She had to live with so much pain - physically and emotionally and no one ever heard her complain about anything. She was a real trooper. I only wish I knew how much she was suffering so I could have been there for her....
How I will actually be remembered:
Oh, she was such a whiner. The only time I ever heard her speak, she was complaining about something. She never did get her stuff together. I always wanted to hide when I saw her coming.
How do you want to be remembered? How do you think you will be remembered?
Mine was tongue - in - cheek. Sometimes I just can't be serious. Then again, I'm sure of certain people I know who wouldn't laugh at that....the ones I'm always venting to....

How do I think I will be remembered? I think when I am gone it will be all of the above and the people in my family that are still here will talk about my jello cake. They will say" Patty, Nana always made us jello cake for our birthdays. I miss her jello cake. lol

I found your scenario very very funny! It's a very funny foil what we think of ourselves vs. what others think. Many times friends and relatives ask how I'm doing (but I know they're hoping I keep it short.) Ha! I like the part about hiding when they see you coming.
I don't want to be remembered yet! I want to be the guy who remembers all of you wonderful people who were fortunate enough to get a terrible incurable disease just in time to receive a cure that stopped it in it's tracks, and then went on to enjoy the rest of your lives!!!!
If you think I'm just looking at life with rose colored glasses... You haven't been keeping current on all the research and progress they are making. It is astounding!

Don't be so hard on yourself. You will be remebered as a trooper no doubt because anyone with a connective tissue disease has to be. The reality is so much in kept inside of us and we just have to go on.
I don't want to be remembered. I want out live them all and then they can remember me as the one they never thought would make it this far. I have alot of living to do in the meantime. Susie54

I've never really thought about it actually since I'd rather concentrate on annoying people whilst I'm still here. I still think positively for a cure even though I know I may be kidding myself.
It's a good question and one I think we can have some fun with!
Love to all

You know it's kinda like people in the military when they get home from being on tour, people have a big to do (Welcome home party)then it is over with and we gone on like it not important anymore. It's just in that moment. You will be remembered.

She should be remembered as a great person, wife, mother and grandmother. A person that should have complained more and told the doctors more so it didn't have to be so terrible.
