What would you like your legacy to be?

My children 

The small kindnesses I have done for people.

The interest I take in others .

The times I have listened 



Thoughts for sharing:

Talking about death is like talking about sex. It's not easy but you start with the easy stuff.  Then a little more next time.. getting a bit  more 'intimate' each time, asking questions and sharing .  And it's life changing.

'Silence is the most profound form of communication and we don't give it the respect it deserves' dr Michael Barbato. 'Dying. Start the Conversation.'
