Will People Remember Me When I'm Dead?

Updated on February 4, 2016

What Will People Say About Me When I'm Dead

Have you ever thought, wow, what will people remember about me when I am gone? I've always wondered what people will think and say about me when I die. When I'm dead, will people speak kindly of me? Or will they be glad I'm dead and out of their lives? Okay I hope that last sentence is not true because that would be very sad.

I am sure it's crossed your mind what will happen when you die and maybe you have even thought about how many people will show up at your funeral. Do you want to accomplish something in your life so you'll be remembered for it?

Some people are so afraid to die that they never begin to live.

— Henry Van Dyke

What Will People Think of Me When I Die?

What Will They Say at my Eulogy?

I haven't achieved much in my life, or at least anything that is notable that would be recorded in history. My achievements are small and probably wouldn't be noticed by anyone outside of my family. I have two great kids and a wonderful husband who I'm sure will remember me long after I pass away, but to the rest of the world once I'm gone I'll vanish into the dust.

A friend who dies, it's something of you who dies.

— Gustave Flaubert

      I've wondered about that sometimes, too. Probably not much in my case. It should at least be a good incentive for accomplishing something worthwhile in your life.

      I hope that they would say that I was a loving and devoted wife, mother, daughter and friend, who volunteered her time to causes close to her heart. I want to be remembered as a kind, giving and loving person.
