Charlie Munger, a billionaire, wants his children to remember three parenting lessons "until their 100th birthdays."

Charlie Munger, 99, passed away on November 28. Among his last writings are these reflections on his life and career that he wrote for CNBC Make It. 

Although my children and grandchildren may not share my opinions, I hope they will look to me as an example of how to succeed in their relationships and careers,  

just as I did with the generations that came before me. In my early years,

my father worked as a lawyer. He had as a client Grant McFayden, the Pioneer Ford dealer in Omaha and one of his closest friends. He was a self-made, intelligent, charming man of great integrity. 

My father, on the other hand, dealt with a difficult, conceited, and unfair client. I was thinking to myself,  

"Why do you do so much work for Mr. X, this overreaching blowhard, instead of working more for wonderful men like Grant?"  

"Grant treats his employees right, his customers right, and his problems right," said my dad. " 

"He doesn't have a lucrative enough legal practice to keep you with Coca-Cola. However, Mr. X is a veritable minefield of amazing legal matters."
