How will You be Remembered?

 

I watched a YouTube video interview of one of my favorite musicians, Ed Sheeran, and I was intrigued by his incredibly kind and humble demeanor.  When asked about the origin of his good nature, he responded, "I have good parents."

 

A lovely answer, and one that caused me to reflect upon life in general.  Recently, our Southern Oregon real estate community lost another beloved soul.  It's no surprise that Realtor Jolie Johnson's sudden and unexpected death has generated an outpouring of love on Facebook. 

 

I was touched by a common thread of adjectives used to describe her... "she was kind, loving, and a gentle spirit."  Her colleague's admiration for her speaks volumes to a life well lived.  It's obvious that love emanated from her veins. 

 

When it comes right down to it, and the final curtain is drawn, no one cares about the awards you earned, the titles you achieved, or the number of units you sold.  What they remember most is how you made them feel.
