How would you like to be remembered when you leave this world?
Oh my, wonderful question! I would like to be remembered as a mother who infused her children with strength and love and a sense of responsibility to others.

I would like to be remembered as someone who did some small good things, at least who tried to, who gave more than she took.

Of course, I can't help but think of a story (I think of it as a mythic joke--Jewish humor--told at Thanksgiving dinners growing up, but my mother swears it is true): Apparently I have a great, great aunt somewhere in Dallas whose tombstone reads "I TOLD YOU I WAS SICK!"
