What People Actually Say Before They Die

Insights into the little-studied realm of last words.
Mort Felix liked to say that his name, when read as two Latin words, meant “happy death.” When he was sick with the flu, he used to jokingly remind his wife, Susan, that he wanted Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” played at his deathbed.
But when his life’s end arrived at the age of 77, he lay in his study in his Berkeley, California, home, his body besieged by cancer and his consciousness cradled in morphine, uninterested in music and refusing food as he dwindled away over three weeks in 2012. “Enough,” he told Susan. “Thank you, and I love you, and enough.”
Jeffery Olsen and Dr. Jeff O’Driscoll
Near death, shared death, and profound experiences.
Jeffery Olsen suffered a tragic car accident that claimed the life of his wife Tamara and their young son. In this excerpt from his book KNOWING, Jeffery Olsen describes what happened after the accident and the conversation that took place between him and his wife as they stood at the threshold of life and death.

Here the doctor shares his encounter with Tamara, Jeffery Olsen’s wife, who had died just a short time earlier in the fatal car accident.
Do Our Pets Have an Afterlife?
by Dr. Kenneth Ring
We all know what happens when we die – we don’t.
At least that’s what most of us believe, whether by religious faith or because we’ve been convinced by the collective testimony of near death experiencers or perhaps for other reasons.
But whatever the basis of our beliefs, we hold that life isn’t a dead end. Upon death, we just continue to exist in another form.
But what about our pets?
