We all saw the same qualities in him. And isn’t that what leaving a legacy is all about?
I left the service feeling deeply touched and self-reflective. I wondered what will people say about me? In a lot of ways I hope to live as my uncle did (though as much as I love an adventure, I can live without the motorcycles!).
In order for people to say those words you have to live that way. Thanks to my Uncle Ron, who passed before his time, I am inspired to live my life fully, to enrich the lives of others by sharing experiences, to lean into fear instead of resist it and to always make my best effort. I’m inspired to think more about how I want to be remembered and take action everyday to make that a reality. Most importantly I’m more inspired to make a difference in the lives of others while I can, however I can.

Thank you Uncle Ron. You shared a lot of yourself over the years and I am forever grateful. Love and miss you.
How about you? Have you ever given any thought to how you want to be remembered? Are you living your life that way every day?
