I have often wondered about that, How do people know?

I like to believe that God gives them the chance to crystallize things that are really important, such as spending those last moments with people they love. A little measure of grace, a chance for loved ones to participate in their departure, to just be there.

Prayers and condolences to you and your family. May you find peace and comfort in your time of loss.
