How Will You Be Remembered?

A powerful article from my friend, Tim Ellsworth in the Jackson Sun:

An unusual obituary ran in a California newspaper last month.

It was an obit for 79-year-old Dolores Aguilar in the Times-Herald of Vallejo, Calif. Her daughter Virginia Brown was the writer.

“Dolores had no hobbies, made no contribution to society and rarely shared a kind word or deed in her life,” Brown wrote about her mother. “I speak for the majority of her family when I say her presence will not be missed by many, very few tears will be shed and there will be no lamenting over her passing.”

What a way to be remembered, huh?

  1. That is sad.One thing I hope will not be remembered about me is that I’m a blond.but that they will remember my fights against blond jokes.Such as the ones on your facebook.When people tell me a blond joke I simply say “Its better to have blond hair then none at all.”just kidding.
