"There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time." from SUM by David Eagleman.
I wonder if this is why I occasionally talk about, and by name, my great-grandparents. And sometimes I go back even further. It's partly because I had some geneaologists in my family but also partly because I seem to be a person who is determined to keep the past alive in some sort of meaningful way.
