Type of spiritual experience
A description of the experience
From The Ministry of Angels - Mrs Joy Snell
Mrs Snell was a nurse in a large hospital and produced a book in which the cases she worked on were described
I recall the death of a woman (Mrs. Brown, aged 36) who was the victim of that most dreadful disease, malignant cancer.
Her sufferings were excruciating, and she prayed earnestly that death might speedily come to her and end her agony.
Suddenly her sufferings appeared to cease; the expression of her face, which a moment before had been distorted by pain, changed to one of radiant joy. Gazing upwards, with a glad light in her eyes, she raised her hands and exclaimed,
'Oh, mother dear, you have come to take me home. I am so glad ! '
And in another moment her physical life had ceased.
