Death of a Legacy


When a loved one dies, especially when it’s a little one, more than their life is gone.

And here’s why.

A youthful death takes away part of the family legacy for all future generations.

Children that would have been born will never exist.

A potential son-in-law or daughter-in-law will never enhance the holiday gatherings.

The family tree won’t flourish with volumes of branches and bouquets of leaves.

Instead, some of the limbs will remain empty and barren.

Life will be hollow without the joy and excitement of a full house.

What was normal and routine has now become irregular and unusual.

All that’s left are memories of the past, and sorrow for what could have been.

Exactly how does this relate to you?
