    I connect with this piece. In the end, the greatest legacy one could leave behind, is good memories. No amount of anything could ever substitute good memories. If we always remember our mortality, we will remain humble, if we forget it, we will remain stupid. (Report) Reply

    This is beautiful, and brought tears to my eyes. My father recently died, and I wish I had loved more, 'in time'. (Report) Reply
