A serene death



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

At the Hour of death – Dr Karlis Osis and Dr Erlendur Haraldsson

A woman in her seventies, suffering from pneumonia, was a semi-invalid who spent a painful miserable existence.  Her face became so serene, as if she had seen something beautiful.  There was a transfixed illumination on her face – a smile beyond description.  Her features were almost beautiful on so old a face.  Also her skin had a transparent, waxy quality – almost snow white .
