    Choosing exactly when to slip away?

    Post  Violet on Wed Jun 30, 2010 12:54 am

    First topic message reminder :

    I've heard loads of times how someone will be in their last minutes of their life, with their loved ones by their bedside, and often they will slip away when their loved ones leave the room for a few minutes, do you think this is just down to chance? Or can we choose to go when our loved ones backs are turned, and do you think this happens to spare the feelings of the loved ones?

    i was very saddened to read of your grandson's passing though i think it's wonderful that you all supported him on his journey.
    the cooling of the room was perhaps a message that you were not alone, a comfort, as it isn't something i've seen either.

    So true, its Angels....I think they bring the temperature down becuase of there presance...
    I am sure they are not just there to protect us, but hold our hands when we are ready.

    Yes,it was a distinct cooling down,the temp dropped very rapidly.
    I shivered suddenly and rushed to shut the window. Thought the temp outside had dropped.

    Hi Joanie, the prescence of a spirit is often mistaken for a draught

    It would scare me to death if someone did that, a great talking point at the wake though.
