if you were to write your own eulogy? Not what accomplishments that you have achieved, but more along the lines of What do you stand for?<br><br>
(<i>sorry if this is morbid, however, I have been asked to write this for another message board. Writing this has got me thinking about what others would say about themselves. Thus leading me to post this here</i>.)

Before her tragic demise from falling off a cliff on Mt Everst at the age of 87, Jessica was an enthusiastic and cheerful person. Sadly her senility grew too great for her to remember that she has always been horribly clumsy and would never have tried mountain climbing in her youth.<br><br>
She loved her child dearly and was occasionally fond of her dh, when she remembered who he was. She loved gardening, knitting vulgar clothing for her grandchildren and playing the banjo.<br><br>
She is remembered for her Activism in her organization, All CottonWood Trees Must Die, which made much progress for the betterment of allergy sufferers everywhere.<br><br><br>

You all thought I was gone, but alas, I have to get the last word in no matter what. People have a tendency at funerals to idealize those who have passed on, but I'd like to remind you of my less than pleasant traits, lest you place me upon some immortal pedestal.<br><br>
As a child I picked my nose and wiped the boogers on the wall by my bed. Throughout childhood and occasionally as an adult I bit my nails. I was very boring and extremely naive, a common phrase I uttered being, "For real?" I enjoyed gross foods, like pickle and cheese sandwiches, and mac and cheese with tuna. I tormented my baby brother by dressing him up in my doll clothes and paying him to do tasks with money stolen from his own piggy bank. Need I go on?<br><br>
In all seriousness, there are only a few things I'd like people to remember about me. I want my children to know that they were my world, that the love and fulfillment I felt when just looking at their sweet faces was completely overwhelming. I want my husband to know that I never found the bottom of the depths of my love for him. To my parents, thank you for the beautiful example of loving and sacrificial parenting. I lived a life filled with love. I have no regrets.
