Janice R's Experience

Experience description:   

My mother was in a coma & had a round the clock nurse on duty in her room, the nurse observed her reaching up, while in the coma & shortly after regained consciousness, she told the nurse that she saw her deceased brother who she was very close too prior to his death at the age of 22. She said that in her dream or whatever occurred that she saw herself standing on a cliff with nothing below and her brother was across from her on another cliff and he was reaching out for her and told her to take his hand so he could pull her over to the other side and she was trying very hard to reach him but said she couldn't. This is what the nurse observed her doing, trying to reach him. She then awoke and told the story to the nurse who believed that if she had been able to take his hand and he pulled her over to the other side that he was on that she would have died. I truly believe that my mother had a near death experience.
