"Live your life in such a way, so that the preacher doesn't have to lie at your funeral"

Ok, so a little background about the title. This past weekend I went to a funeral for my best friends
Aunt. She passed away earlier last week of an apparent heart attack. Because this is my best friend of 23 years, my parents and I went to the funeral down in Port Arthur to support the family. When the pastor was giving his Eulogy, he said something that has stuck with me since. "Live your life in such a way, so that the preacher doesn't have to lie at your funeral" WOW...that may be some of the greatest advice I've heard in awhile. And it's so true. I know when its my time to die, move on, go away...I want people to look at my life and say...now that was a good, decent, caring, respectful person. I hope that all of my friends and family will have nothing but positive things to say about me. And I hope that's the case now.
