    The how in front of your question isn't necessary, because for 99% of the world's population, you won't be. Sure you'll be remembered for a while by any surviving friends and family, but nothing long term. Our generations might even make it a little longer thanks to the internet, but when it's all said and done most won't even be a blip in history.

    A perfect example of this is my Grandpa. He died when my mom and aunts were kids, so neither me nor any of my cousins knew him. So when our parents die, his memory dies with them. It doesn't matter how great he was, or how many people he helped, or how many lives he affected.

    The real question is Do you want to be remembered, or better yet, What are you doing to be remembered. Unless you are doing something that drastically affects the world, good or bad, the sad truth is you won't be.

      Sapper - love it - that's the truth.  I imagine this ques refers to what would you like people to say at your funeral for the 1/2 hour they'll think of you after you died.  However, if you WRITE an unforgettable phrase??? - hmmm..think Shakespeare...

    As a lovable person!  A lovable  daughter, sister, Mummy, Grandmother and friend.  Someone who left their love scattered around.

    The world remembers either very good deeds or very bad deeds though in routine we must remember that middle path is the best path as two extreme points that is very good or very bad are not as much fixed as north pole or south pole. Every very good can be excelled. Still can you forget Albert Einstein or Sir Issac Newton. Think if these scientist of olden days had the today's modern technology in their hands what could have they achieved. Now it is for us to decide if we do like to be remembered and if yes, how. As regards getting remembered in the family is of not that important as memories get washed easily.

    This is a question I always ask myself every day. I would want to be remembered by having been loving mother and faithful wife, who always tried to do the right thing. One who couldn't change the world, but tried to make it enjoyable and fun for all others around her.

    Nobody can be perfect so naturally I am imperfect. Nobody can make everybody happy so I am one among the lot. Apart from these disqualifications I consider myself as a person with a strong and definite voice and I would like to be remembered as the way I am.

    Great, great question.  I certainly DON'T want to be remembered as I truly am!  I would prefer someone embellish all my measly accomplishments.  I would like to be remembered as a survivor - brave, scrappy, a free-thinking woman who at 68 is not afraid to use the "ef" word.  I'd like someone to remember something I wrote and to say that it mattered to them.  I would like people to think I was kind and open-hearted, open-minded, a free thinker, creative, a bit funny, a bit ditzy, and that I had a tight grasp on technology even though I was born in the 40's.  I would like to be remembered as having been a wonderful wife to the husband who left and to the husband who didn't.  I'd like to be remembered as someone who brought a little wisdom into my husband sons' lives, and most importantly, I'd like to be remembered as a mother who loved my daughter above life itself. (If she chose to use the words "best mother in the whole wide world" I wouldn't mind).

    That is a difficult questıon for every person So am I.There is no suspicion that every person wants to be remembered as having good qualificatıons.Therefore, I would want to be remembered a helpful person for everyone.Also I think that success story is very significant for being forgettable...For example; my role model is Steve Jobs.When Steve Jobs is dead,many people remembered him because of his success story and of course his innovatıons.Hence, I  would want be remembered like Steve Jobs...
