Default after you are gone...

I have been told that there are some regulars here that may not be long with us...

(was told so at Toledo last weekend.)

What will they think of you after you have gone on???

Think about it !!

Guess I don't care if I'm remembered or not....as long as I'm not remembered badly!

A very good friend of mine, that had a severe heart attack and was very limited on what he was able to do, once told me "When a friend dies, you lose a friend, but when you die, you lose all your friends".

I remember him on an almost daily basis. He was right...I lost a friend.

I don't see how it would matter. People either love me or hate me for who I am, what I stand up for, or what I am willing to do. I'm not going to cater to my critics. That's like trying to win a football game by giving the other team the ball and laying down. I stand for what I believe, whether they agree or not. I will always do that whether I'm right or wrong. Why would I care what they think after I go?


Have a great day!

I could care less what people think. The ones that know me and what I'm about will celebrate my life as I celebrate there's and remember our great times together. I've lost a few good freinds and remember them for what they were GOOD FREINDS.

I'm getting some somber thoughts from this message, regarding a 'regular' here that I came to respect and admire, and have not heard from for some weeks.

Well if when I go people can laugh and be happy that they knew me or that they are happy I am gone....Looks like it would be a win win for everyone. As for what Ia m remembered for or how.

That, my friend, has everything to do with the AMA. The AMA is it's members. Nothing more, nothing less.

You are either an asset, or a liability. I dearly hope that I have been an asset to this hobby, and to the world.

Over the years I have pondered this question many times and I always come back to the same desire. Like others here I most likely have left the impression of being a gapeing orifice to many over my tour but at the end I have always wanted to be remembered as a craftsman. As my children grow I have also started to want to be remembered as a good dad.
Otherwise I guess they can bury me upside down, I might deserve it.

Two times in my life I have been called a dumb*** by someone who meant it. Both times in this forum. That's what it takes for me to actively dislike someone. As long as there aren't personal attacks, I see no reason to dislike anyone. A different opinion makes for healthy conversation. I don't think poorly of anyone, even if the discussion gets heated, as long as it stays on topic. Heck, I even like Vic, though we seem to disagree on just about everything.
Do I want to be remembered well? Shoot, hopefully I've got another fifty or sixty years to worry about it.
