C J can’t work “PollDaddy” to save her life! ARGHHHH! And the Mouse? Forgettttabouttttt it!

C J is hoping that her kind readers will LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW to answer, PLEASE! She promises that this is not a scientific poll, none of her readers’ identities or information will be turned over to any entity, and that would include the N.S.A., no matter if the agents came to her door and skinned the little mouse or cut off one of his little tiny ears.  However, if they started to take a knife to his tail, she MIGHT start giving up names of folks who come by here and forget to leave an answer…it will take just a couple of  minutes.

WHY DO WE NEED YOUR HELP? Here’s the exciting stuff we have been keeping from you…

Thanks to all of you, in a large way, because without a readership, we really wouldn’t have continued…and without a blog, we couldn’t have been offered a very honorable, yet humbling opportunity to become a monthly contributing author for Mortuary Management magazine. It is a highly respected, iconic funeral service trade publication that has been in circulation since 1914!!!

We are trying to work on an article about being remembered. That’s it. So who better to tap for a real-world view? Why, YOU! Of course! Would you help? Please? And, we are unfortunately working on a really tight schedule since we just dreamt this informal survey up…

 

We thank you all!

#1—What, if any, legacy do you hope to leave for others?

#2—All religious beliefs aside, do you believe there is a certain amount of worth or purpose in a person’s existence or life’s work?

#3—Do you think it’s important to be remembered?

#4—Have you planned to be cremated? Earth burial? Other?

#5—IF you are cremated, what will be done with your ashes?

#6—Do you currently have a loved one’s ashes in your possession? Do you know what you plan to do with them?

Remember, this is just for us to formulate an idea of just how important, or not…it is that people feel remembered after they depart this life. It is personal, it should be thought provoking. It ought to give you pause. And no we will never turn this info into a science project because we love you and we appreciate you all. Without you we are toast nothing. Answer one or two, answer all. Whatever you want. We send you huge hugs for payment, in advance!

  1. #1—What, if any, legacy do you hope to leave for others?
    I would hope that I am remembered with fondness and love. As the person who always listened and tried her best to help when she could.

    #2—All religious beliefs aside, do you believe there is a certain amount of worth or purpose in a person’s existence or life’s work?
    There is always worth to existence. It is up to the individual to find that purpose.

    #3—Do you think it’s important to be remembered?
    I think of those who have passed with love and fondness. I would hope I would be remembered in much the same way. It would be terrible (especially for a genealogist) to have nothing to find about me.

    #4—Have you planned to be cremated? Earth burial? Other?
    I haven’t really thought too much about it. The majority of my family have been cremated.

    #5—IF you are cremated, what will be done with your ashes?
    My brothers are in a wall at a Memorial garden and my parents have reserved a spot beside them. Since I haven’t even thought that far ahead, I guess I would trust the judgement of those I left behind with what they wish to do.

    #6—Do you currently have a loved one’s ashes in your possession? Do you know what you plan to do with them?
    No.

    Congrats on your new gig CJ and mousie! That is just awesome.

  2. 1. I hope to leave the legacy of laughter when someone thinks of me.
    2. People have a worth, their existence has a worth but only if they make it so. If we always remember there are others in the world and we should care for them how could our being here not have worth?
    3. Yes, it’s important to be remembered. We form part of a family unit, a greater whole and a history.
    4.Cremation is my choice since the ground is a valuable asset we’re wasting I feel.
    5.I hope my ashes will be scattered amongst the hills of home though I don’t mind if my daughter wanted to save a few to be made into memorial jewellery.
    6.I have my wife’s ashes. If my daughter doesn’t want to keep them, maybe she’ll intermingle them with mine to scatter.

    Huge Congratulations on being asked to contribute to such an August journal. I hope they’ll leave mousie’s tail alone now.
    xxx Huge Hugs xxx

    • Thanks ever so much for your very thoughtful and personal responses. It means a lot to us that you are comfortable enough to share those things with us. Believe it or not we’ve met a rare person (or 2) who thought there was no point in taking or keeping photos of family and friends, family trees, or other pieces of personal heritage or heirlooms. They didn’t believe there was a God, and that there was really nothing to this existence and certainly nothing coming afterward either. We don’t judge…but we felt, in our own biased way, that to live such a sterile life might feel very empty…as in nearly ‘meaningless’ when all was said and done…we felt sad, frankly, trying to put ourselves into that mindset or belief-set. But, we were already biased, tainted, if you will…so it was probably impossible to do, actually. Sort of like going from being a life-long Catholic to converting to Judaism…quite a leap of faith! Huge hugs in thanks and and we appreciate the encouragement on our little ‘good news’ item, as well. The article this poll will go into will be the 2nd one…going out in January.
