Later at home, the lad asked for his father's opinion on the differences in the people at the Synagogue as some were always kind and friendly to him, while others seemed to ignore him. "Like the world, our people are also diverse in manner and attitude. Some of them feel that they should always make time for and to remember the children, as they are the greatest gifts that He has given to us and that we will live on through them. Others feel that they have no time for any but themselves and their successes in life, with no thought about anything after death. I can only tell you to hold the memories of the nice ones nearest your heart and to remember to honor them when they are gone." "Father, what exactly does happens to our people when they die?" the little boy asked. "That is somewhat hard to say, Son, and probably a question that would be better answered for you by Rabbi Stanley, but I am pleased you have asked such a questions as there is something I want to tell you about. It is the remembering aspect of death that every father must talk with his children about when they are old enough to understand. I have told you about children being our greatest blessing from Him, but it is more than just through our lifetimes, as it is our belief that we will live on after death through our children. As many of us grow older, we begin asking ourselves how will our children remember me and what will they do with what we have done? I know in my heart the answer for myself right now. I know that you are a good son and just as I have honor and remember my father and his father, I know that you will remember and honor me after I am gone, and that you will care for and carry on in my business." The father knew that his firstborn had grasped this first of many conversations that would follow when he said: "Yes Father, I will remember and honor you."
