Although I suppose it depends on what you're remembered for.
I got an e-mail from an old boyfriend. One I think about often. Art and I dated while stationed in Germany, back in 1973-74. He was incredibly cute and sexy. But I was dumb and things went wrong. Worked out great for him, though. He's been married thirty-some years and has a daughter.
It's nice wandering through memories of old times. What a good and fun life I've had. Oh, of course some things have gone wrong. But overall life has been good to me.
