If you have children they often worry and wonder about your death..  I told my children that I will never die as long as they have children and their children have children..   because somewhere in that long line they will see my eyes..  my smile..  hear my laugh..  see my walk..  so I will never die. 

My daughter Liz and I were together last week when the proof appeared. We had 60 family members together for Easter brunch.  My aunt pulled out a video she made from old film snippets she found in my grandmothers basement.  She took 2 months to paste the pieces together. She screened them for all of us to commemorate what would have been my grandfathers 100th birthday.  My nephew Zach was seated across from me as we watched "Poppa" on the screen from the 1950's and early 1960's.  From Poppa to my Mother to my brother Dan and now to my nephew Zach.. Zach looked like Poppa.  Mom and Dan don't resemble Poppa at all but somehow Poppa had appeared in Zach.  Life continues.

I had almost the same experience.  One of my great nieces.  It seemed like I had seen her long ago.   Someone from my childhood.   It was a puzzle.  It was all cleared up when one of my brother’s in law showed a number of slides at a family get together.  One of the slides was of my younger sister at about the age of five.  The same age resemblance was shocking.  Her mother had a little resemblance to my sister, but not like this.   

 

All three, my niece, great niece, and younger sister all grew up to be very pretty women.  I don’t pretend to be an impartial judge.   

 

As I have already said, nice blog, thank you.

I see myself in my daughter.  She inherited my sense of humor too.  I see myself in my granddaughters, and so do others who meet them. In spite of all that, my daughter and granddaughters are very pretty.

 

Nice blog, thanks.

A profound way to look at the issue, Smax. Also, some people that have experiences from previous lives tell that they have lived as their own ancestors.

 

When my children brings up the issue, I just give them a grin and tell them that I will become really old and grumpy, so that they will be happy to finally get rid of me anyway... :)

 

But I believe that there are much more to us than flesh and blood, and try to pass on that we don't really die, but just move on to the next chapter.
