[VERY INSPIRING] How one of my mentors wants to be remembered
HE LOVED GOD FIRST.
Without God, I am nothing and have nothing of value pass on through my legacy. I love Him because He love me more than I can imagine and because of all He has done for me.
HE LOVED HIS FAMILY AND EXTENDED FAMILY.
You can’t ask for anything more precious than family. They are there with you when things are going well and when things are going bad. I love my family!
HE WAS A GIVER.
Meeting needs is my opportunity to give back, to help, to serve, to bless—and besides, it’s a whole lot of fun!
HE WAS AN ENCOURAGER.
I want people to walk away from me feeling more encouraged and more excited about life than before they saw me.
There is nothing in the world so important that I can’t forgive another person. The freedom and liberty that forgiveness brings is indescribable, and I do all I can to liberate others as well.
HE KEPT HIS WORD.
I believe that keeping my word is of utmost importance. I have made promises many years ago that are written in my will—when I die, my promises will still be kept.
HE HONORED GOD WITH HIS LIFE.
My hope is that everything I do in life will be a testament of God’s goodness. God deserves to be honored with everything I am and ever will be.
HE ALWAYS HAD A POSITIVE ATTITUDE.
This includes never giving up; serving; loving; giving, seeing the best in others; and much, much more.
HE WAS A ROLE MODEL.
My objective is to prepare my children and grandchildren for the best future imaginable—in every sense of the word.
HE CONSISTENTLY HELPED OTHERS.
A handout is one thing, but a hand up is so much better. A gift or act of service once a year is nice, but change usually comes through long-term help—I believe that it is the least I can do.
