The Footsteps We Leave Behind Are Our Legacy

The Footsteps We Leave Behind Are Our Legacy

Legacy We leave footsteps on the world as we walk through life. Tonight we were watching This Is Us, the episode of William's memorial. After leaving a letter behind for his granddaughters to plan the service, Randall is finally able to sit back and let some of the stress in his life subside. Watching this, people William knew are sharing stories of how he touched their lives. His boyfriend shared how William faked knowing about football so he could 'fit in' among his friends.
