Now you might think that the most obvious way to leave a legacy is through bequeathing an inheritance through your last will and testament, but really, more than this, we want to know that after we’ve gone, it mattered that we were here, more than just in a financial respect. 

If you just take a moment to remember those you loved the most that you’ve lost, then you’ll realise that those memories, the ones you cherish the most, are about who that person was at their core, how they made you feel, the difference they made in your life and in others’ lives. 

Leaving a Legacy is all about saying “Yes World – I was here”.  I mattered and here’s why.
