More to Death Than Meets the Eye

More to dying than meets the eye

Martha Atkins, CEO Atkinsosity, LCC

Those who work with the dying are familiar with patients seeing long deceased loved ones, angelic beings, even hearing music and comforting voices as the patient nears death. Deathbed phenomena have been documented in the days, weeks, and months before death since the 1500s.
