If you expired tommorow

warning   Warning
**Heavy thread** NO light hardheartedness. Only serious consideration need reply


If for whatever reason you were to expire tomorrow (cessation of life) - do you think, suspect or believe you'd be missed?


If so, by who - and why?

My thread and it's only apt I answer truthfully.

Personally I believe apart from my immediate adult family (all 2 of them - Father and sister), I'd be a meh in the vast land of the lost.

Secondary would be my infant nephew and niece who would easily forget my existence in due course.

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 would definitely be missed by my immediate family - wife, 4 adult children and my sister. I have a few close friends that would miss me as well. I have 6 grown nieces and nephews that would remember me but not sure they'd actually miss me. I also have 7 great nieces and nephews that I would just be a name (if anything) to. Beyond that, no great loss to the rest of the world.

Difficult, ego touching question.

Yes, I would be missed. I know for sure I am important to a few people, loved and respected by them. Angie and her mother, my sons, my sister and brother and nieces and nephews, a few really close friends and colleagues.

I also would like to think a few of my virtual friends here consider me as a close enough friend to be be missed.

I answered Pretty sure .

I know my husband would, I think from out of my 4 kids my youngest daughter would miss me the most. There may be a few online friends who'll miss me for awhile but not for long.

This is a very sobering thought a month before my 70th birthday.

Personally, I think our demise impacts far more people than we imagine....people don't know what they will miss until its gone. I think my immediate family, wife & kids would miss me the most, for obvious reasons.

A bit depressive thread.

Joan, please let me tell you I would truly miss you. I visit your cross-stitch site quite often, showing it to my real life friends telling you are a good example of how IT and Windows is not a hobby just for nerds but for everyone, like for instance my cross-stitching Welsh friend.

Angie promised I can have an affair with you. Please let me know when the hubby is out of town .

Your friend

Hi Patrick,

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.
