I have been to two Catholic funerals in 8 days so life and death is on my mind.

Usually whens someone dies, they'll have a "viewing" or memorial type service for the individual the day before the funeral where the family friends get together and pray for and celebrate the life of the person who passed away. This is usually the time when family and friends stand up and tell memories of the person.

I was thinking during the memorial tonight as memories and kind words were being shared, what do I want my legacy to be? When people are at my funeral, what will they get up and say about me?

So first, how do you want people to remember you? Second, when you leave this world, what will people say about you at your funeral? Are you going to be remember in the way that you want to be remembered?

I think about this kind of stuff occasionally. I actually don't know how I'd like to be remembered.

I want to be remembered not by my words or actions, good or bad. I just want to be remembered as a person who left a good memory or two in their hearts that gives them a smile. A life that just so happened to cross another, be it by fate or happenstance, and left an unforgettable experience knowing one another. A memory that makes them forget the void of emptiness and loneliness one may carry, even if it's just a drop in the bucket.

That and the guy with a huuuuuuuuuge penor lmao.

To be honest, I don't want to be remembered. I hope at my funeral they say that I went out of my way to truely live.

And everyone who remembers them will die

in fact if my family waste money on a funeral I'll haunt the fuck out of them. They should donate my body to some trainee surgeons or something and get on with their lives.

Maybe my absence will make others see me more fondly than they ever have. Sad that I would have to lose my life, the most precious thing one could have, in order for others to view me better.

Despite never stealing from anyone, berating anyone, abusing anyone or deliberately aggravating anyone, if 100 people were in a room with me, I do not doubt they would all pay attention to me, but the behavior and words would be negative to varying degrees.

If enemies and critics were barred from attending my funeral then, between family and friends, there might be 10 people. 7 relatives, 3 friends - my entire inner circle. If anyone on UG here were possible, theoretically, to attend I doubt anyone would. And if there were any attendees, it would be just to hurl insults at my corpse.

Why do you think people dislike you so much?

Ti nisi, ki boš svet zavzel,
in tiho utonil v eno s časom,
razpokan bodeš hrepenel,
razžgan, boleč, s hripavim glasom.

Kot Kras, ko veter še gorak
vžge te borove gozdove,
prežge temo - in tvoj korak
zaman gre mir iskat v mrakove.

Ti nisi, ki jo boš objel,
ko pala noč bo temna nanjo,
ti sanjal boš in hrepenel
in smrt uganila ti bo sanjo.


Gozd in gora poj,
silen ženimo hrup,
uboga gmajna, le vpup, le vkup,
le vkup, le vkup z menoj,
staro pravdo v mrak tulimo,
da se pretulimo skozi to zimo

damn


you alright tho

I really wanna be like my dad, he died when I was young but I still meet people that knew him and just speak so highly of him and they're always really nice/generous with me because of him.

Get told I act like him a lot, but I'm also a really distant person so I doubt I make much of a difference to anybody.

I would like to be remembered as a kind person.

I will probably be remembered as that, but also as a wannabe crazy cat lady who liked reading and took Jeopardy very seriously

Idk what Hindu funerals are like but I don't think they have memorial things like what is described in the OP.
