Apart from that, My passing if known 'how about that' at best I'd get a couple of heart felts.
It's a sobering thought.

I often wonder about this a lot. When my cousin passed away a few years back and we had the funeral I was amazed at how many people were there. Many people, not just family, but friends and co-workers spoke of how she touched their lives and would be. I know I miss her as she was my best friend.
Anyway it got me thinking about the very same question you pose. For me, I can only say that I hope that I've made the type of positive impact she made on those she met, and that they'll at least remember me. I don't think anyone wants to leave the world alone.
In the end it comes down to how we treat people and whether we care about those around us. I remember the pastor at my cousin's funeral saying you can measure the quality of a person's life by the people attending the passing.
I hope I'm not alone when I go. I hope I've lead a quality life.
