Eulogy for Monteque Pope-Le Beau

by Monteque Pope-Le Beau

Age 40. Los Angeles, CA

I would like it to be said of me that I knew how to live well.  Not so much a materialistic life, but in having a purposeful life.  That I gave whenever I could and I made a difference in my part of the world. That I dared to dream and reach for the stars and when I reached them I didn’t stop there. I became the person that my family believed that I could be, who was humble, full of integrity, honor and of good character. Who was loyal to all those who across my path. Helpful, caring and compassionate to everyday strangers.  That I lived a life of service to others never taking more then what I needed.  Living at the pace of nature and being true to myself and my purpose in life.

My Reflection

If someone were to ask me if I would I change anything that happened to me my answer would be …. No!   This is my climb.

My life has been a wonderful journey of ups and downs.  There have been twists and turns along the way some of them good and some of them bad, but all of them have shaped me into who I am today. If someone were to ask me if I would I change anything that happened to me my answer would be …. No!   This is my climb.   And when I get to the top of the mountain’ I will look for a even taller mountain to climb next.   

I believe there’s good in everything and everyone. Maybe they didn’t have the best start in life or the same opportunities. Maybe they didn’t have that support system that was needed to help them and guide them on their way but there is good in everyone regardless of who they are.  It is not up to me to judge why that person is the way they are or why they act the way they do. That is none of my business.

What is within my power is to be able to help others to make a difference in a world that seems to have gone dark. I am a fortunate and blessed individual who wants to share the bounty of my blessings.   Life is a learning process with every step it as a process of learning helping us to become who we were meant to be. It is being true to ourselves and living our true purpose in life. Not settling for a life that we don’t want, but having a life that we do what we love and we love.  It is about being not just a blessing to ourselves, but a blessing to others  without judgement or hatred. It is about constantly striving to be better than what we are and creating a better tomorrow for the generations to come.
