    My Grandfather on my Father's side passed away when I was very young. My Step-Grandfather since then had passed away this Summer.. At family gatherings, we always talk about him. He was a very interesting and unique man. He was close friends with many popular people. Frank Sinatra and the rest of the Rat Pack, for example.. He gambled at the BIG tables in Las Vegas. He was treated with great respect wherever he went. He never worked a day in his life, soughta speak...

    Well, after Thanksgiving dinner, my Grandmother and I had our usual talks.. But today, things were a little different. She's having an easier time talking about his last moments...

    She spoke about how he was in great pain and needed a machine which fed air into his lungs to remain alive... As things began to get worse and worse, he tried removing the air-piece from his face but my Grandmother, at his side, would keep putting it back on. It was only later that she realized he was trying to say he's had enough...

    This went on back and forth for awhile.. Unfortunately, he was falling in and out of concienceness as his heart had begun to slow down and stop occasionally..

    Keep in mind, now - that this was a very, very tough man. He was never afraid of anyone or anything. He was a bodyguard of a very, very popular person. He'd taken gunshots before...

    I've heard so many instances of how people who died momenterally would come back to life to say they'd "seen a light - a tunnel of light" and how "an angel said it wasn't yet my time". This was very different...

    The last time he came to for a moment, he had a petrified look in his eyes. He pulled my Grandmother close and said, "They're trying to get me. They're not human. I have to get out of here!" After saying this, in his horrible condition, he tried to get out of bed...

    And that was the end...

    My Grandmother told me he saw the Gates of Hell.. Until now, I've never had such a positive feeling that what we do in this life can certainly affect the afterlife.. I always try to do what's best and what I think is right.. I hope all of you do your best, as well, to live good, honest lives...

    That's really depressing man. But who knows... he might have been having a dream about the mafia trying to kill him or something. Anyway, I'm sorry about your loss.

    Not surprising. Most of the stories of people who have negative near death experiences live the "Las Vegas" lifestyle.

    Now, supposing that he really DID have a vision of the afterlife, let's hope things worked out for him in the end with the Big Guy.

    Hey all. Thanks.. The thing that makes me really wonder is the part about those chasing him not being human.. I really have to wonder...

    Ya know, there is a book, a pretty good one, that addresses many aspects of the afterlife. The different places you can go. The kind of experience you will have in each and what to expect when you get there. Directions on how to get to each as well. Pretty specific really. There is one fella especially (easy to find, all of his print is in red letters in most cases) that really lays it all out there. Pretty good at answering questions about the unknown from a perspective that is pretty much "on the inside".

    That's an interesting story. Some people aren't ready to die and others are scared to die. Big difference. Sorry about the loss Sal. I don't need to get way too deep here, so I'll shut up now. Out.

    I dunno. I have actually died once in my life (enough for me, but I know it'll come again.)

    There was no bright light. There were no gates of hell. There was just absolute darkness, darker than anything I'd ever seen before. It's hard to imagine, but it was like light had never even existed. There are dark nights where you can see nothing at all, and this was darker.

    The noise, though, was the most memorable part. It was like a loud gust of wind blowing louder and louder and louder into your ears and then suddenly going incredibly silent.

    Wherever that place was, I was there for a good 2 hours, it seemed to me. And while I'm not afraid of dieing anymore, I don't want to spend an eternity bored off my ass in a place that I can't see shit in and is insanely loud to get to.

    But seeing the gates of hell would freak me out and I would spend my dieing breath repenting, if I had the chance.

    Actually, many Near Death Experiences (or NDEs) tend to be negative, I think I've heard it's like six percent...

    And as Dr.Love posted, many people simply feel nothing or do not have an NDE...

    P.S. After listening to Art Bell speak extensively about this subject, it appears that religion has little to do with where you end up, as one of the people he interviewed that saw "hell" was a church lady that had led an apparently upright, moral life of no "Las Vegas" debauchery...

    Of course, I also heard some speculation that (assuming the NDE isn't just an illusion of the dying brain) that you don't necessarily end up where you go...
