Most of us will leave at least some photos of us behind for our loved ones to remember us by, however I realized there will be very little for my family to remember my voice by. As a result of this, I have decided to leave a collection of recordings to behind. One of my ideas which I will definitely do is talk about my favorite memories with each person close to me. I have also considered reading passages of literature but I have no clue what to read, all I can think of are either dark or mundane topics that most people won't want to remember me by. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Never thought of doing a recording. My voice is pretty low and monotonous so I don't think it would be a good thing to leave behind.
However, I was writing a note but deleted it a week ago. Sounds silly, but I wanted to send it to my boss (who I was kind of in love with). I don't really feel the need to leave it so someone else. Family is completely fucked even though we still live together - parents, older brother and me. My best friend, I guess, became a truck driver early summer and I haven't seen or spoken to him him since. Other two or three friends i have are drifting away and I don't really have anything to say to them. They go on with their lives while I wither away in my room. Last saw them a month ago.

Started ranting without realising. What was the topic? Something to leave behind. As I said I wanted to send a note to a woman who in truth I barely know but I deleted it. It just seemed stupid and I figured it was traumatise her and make her blame herself. We did talk a bit about my problems but obviously she didn't want to talk about it much. I'm 99% sure she figured out I like her and started hating me, as it is customary with me. Maybe 'hate' is too strong a word but she definitely changed over night.

Anyway, SN should arrive today. Tried the night-night and partial several times but couldn't do it properly. I don't feel like leaving a note at all now. Family should know why. Mom will be broken.

I'm ranting again, sorry. No one to talk to.

Maybe just some comforting words might be a good idea. In my case I only plan to leave notes to give those left behind some closure. I wish you the best with your plans.

If those pieces of literature are things that connect to who are as a person there shouldn't be hiding it. It may provide some understanding to them or something to relate to. Even a small summary as to why it was important to you.

Leaving an audio recording sounds like a lovely idea, makes me wanna do something similar for my parents/family, although my mind is constantly torn between thinking that my family will either be devastated when I’m gone or that they’ll be glad to be rid of me, and therefore leaving something like that makes me feel like I’m being narcissistic in presuming people would actually be sad that I’m gone.
My parents also don’t really have any recent pics of me either, they’re all on my Instagram which they don’t use, and I think most of them aren’t really the most appropriate for a funeral for example lol as many of them are taken at my work(a strip club):ahhha:

I actually planned to leave behind some recordings of me singing, but talking about memories is a great idea and I might just steal it. Also I don't know if it's something you considered, but you could film yourself talking rather than just do a voice recording. If that's something you're comfortable with of course.

I feel so happy for everyone who has someone for whom something can left behind especially, because I am not in that position.
