“we supply the purpose”

From “Purpose Matters” in KimBoo York’s awesome secular grief blog, Patience and Fortitude:

I suggest that we turn the definition and application of “purpose” from something suffered for mysterious, supernatural reasons, and use it in its true form: a sense of determination to create a life for yourself that is built upon the love you had for the person who died; a resolution to remember them and honor their memory; and create a goal of living a life worth living because you know that’s what they would have wanted you to do.

Have you found a way “to remember them and honor their memory”?
