A shared experience shows how very close these two felt to each other



Type of spiritual experience


It isn't a near death, she died

A description of the experience

Love is the Link – Dr Pamela Kircher

An example of a deep connection between spouses occurred in a couple in their seventies. They had been very close for many years. As she lay dying from cancer, he held her hand and laid his head next to hers on the pillow. They stayed like this for some time in close communication, and then he found himself starting to go down a tunnel. He was still holding her hand as she led the way. At that moment, the nurse touched his shoulder and told him that his wife had just died. Perhaps the shared near-death experience is a tribute to how very close these two people felt to each other.
