It is like they need to be reassured that it is okay for them to leave or to go on. To pass from this life to the next. I know as my Dad was in the process of passing on---we held his hand and told him we loved him and that it was okay for him to go. It was a peaceful moment with tears from the heart--but it was something that we felt needed to be said to Dad. We talked as if he was alert---for the body shuts down but the soul does not. It was like a small child going to school for the first day---it will be okay. It's okay to go. It won't be as scarey as you think. Reassurance through love. Love is what life is about.
