A little while back I compiled a list of things that I thought were important for my son to know when that fateful day finally arrives when I can no longer run fast enough to prevent my age from catching up to me. I went through my house from top to bottom and did an accounting of my net worth in furniture, antiques, collectables and family heirlooms, and concluded that my old “stuff” will probably bring a tidy little sum. This will be my legacy.
Along with that legacy also goes feistiness, laughter, too-outlandish-to-be-true stories, the adventures of “Granny Good Wrench,” and a deep-rooted, innate love for all animals. To express that love, I have requested that my son donate a portion of the proceeds from my estate to Abandoned Pet Rescue.
I am writing this article, dear hearts, to encourage all of you to follow suit. What a great opportunity to help provide care and comfort to innocent creatures and help make the world a better place even after we’re gone. There can be no greater legacy than a legacy of love.
With high hopes and anticipation that all who read our postings will contribute to this endeavor, I have set up an email account just for this purpose. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your puppy love, kitty shenanigans, new beginnings and happy endings. Allie
