I especially like the leaving a legacy part. I guess as one gets older

I want to leave something of myself., what do you do with the negative things? Things you might not want to be shared? Tear them up real quick if you're dying?
Sharilee Swaity's comment, May 5, 2013 1:25 PM
Donna, that is such a good question! Wow! I will have to think about that one for a bit! In the article, the writer talks about leaving a specific "legacy journal" for each of her children, specifically to let each child know how we are feeling about them. But you raise a very good point. Thanks for the comment!
