I love that. The best way to honor someone that you love who has passed is to be the things about them that you loved the most. You can honor their generosity by being generous yourself. You can honor their sacrificial spirit by having that same spirit in you. Of course, it won’t look the same in you as it did in them, but you can still pay it forward.
As much as I love seeing flowers at funerals, this is a better way of celebrating their lives and legacies. Not that you can’t do both. Flowers are pretty, but they don’t last very long. Good deeds and kindness will carry on through generations and no one knows how many people will be transformed by your living out the legacies of those you loved.
