I, like so many others, have asked and pondered
this question. I came up with an interesting answer
that surprised me once I had written it down in my
journal. Even now, after 14 years, I find truth in the
words. They strike a chord of basic truth, one of the
"Ahhh Haa's" I have been searching for.
We will be remembered in the stories of the children
and grandchildren. We will see our handiwork
in full bloom in the way our grandchildren raise and
teach their children.
