He then realizes he is at his own funeral. His life on earth has ended. His family is sitting nearby with tears streaming down their faces. His friends are there recalling specific, memorable events of his life that they had shared with him.
He thinks about the legacy he has left. He had labored hard for several years to build his estate to what it is today. He feels good about it as it is much larger than any previous generation in his family had accumulated.
He then begins to understand the real treasure he has left behind is not his tangible estate but something that is far more valuable. It is the precious memories his loved ones will take with them after the lid of the casket is closed. The most valuable legacy will be his example of a life well lived, the love that was faithfully and unconditionally given away daily. This will enable those who knew him to enjoy life even more fully than he did.
