I hope they will remember that I was always here for them, no matter what. That goes for my nieces and nephews, old grumpy uncles and the whole gang of them. My home and heart are always available to them.
I wanna be known as a true Christian believer. Not a thumper or a hell fire and brimstone kinda person. I did the best I could all the time, when and where I could. And I died happy. I may put "RedMulch lies here" on my stone.
A Christian born with a Legacy of 30+ generations which formed a great part of history throughout the world. I could not even duplicate if I lived until eternity. So, to make it simple, to be remembered for my honesty and being trustworthy and my love for my family and my God.
I had a whole lot of stuff, and most of it was really cool. I knew it was really impressing the dickens out of the neighbors. I had a bunch of superficial relationships with really hot looking women, once again impressing the heck out of everyone. I received the chamber of commerce, man of the month in October of 99, was the head of the K of C, and was on the board of 5 or 6 charities, but never really went to the meetings or did anything. Sat in the front row at church, filled the plate, dressed great, and sang really loud.
Wait that not it - guess what I really want to be remembered for was I was an honest and loving husband, an involved father who loved his children more than life and they all knew it, a good brother, uncle, worker, boss, and friend.
Would love a church full of folks at my funeral who were all happy they knew me.
