Passing away in your sleep

When my paternal grandmother passed away years ago, it happened in her sleep, in her own bed, beside her husband. Would surely be great if we all left this planet the same way - in our sleep, beside our significant other. Or like in the Notebook movie based on the Nicholas Sparks novel where both husband and wipe pass away at the same time, lying next to each other holding hands.

The Notebook way would be great. We have lost several who just went to sleep and never woke up. Sad to say, it happens with young ones too, so not always good.

My dad passed away in his sleep when he was 68. It was good for him but such a shock for us. I woke up while having a heart attack which most people don't. I was one of the lucky ones.

I would hate for my husband to pass away first. Together, very quietly, without pain or suffering sounds good!...as long as I had all my ducks in a row and was ready to go!

Hopefully, that is how it will play out.

Going in your sleep is the way to go

I share you sentiment about passing away. I too feel it is the best way to leave this world. I did read an interesting book called "Crossing The Creek" which hospice gave me when my mother was dying which explained why some people do not pass quietly in their sleep. Basically it says those who have issues in their past (conflicts) have to work through them before "going to the other side to Heaven." Or as they put it in the book, "crossing the creek." As I observed my mother going through this process I could not understand it then, but after reading this book it did provide some clarity.

That is some interesting bit of info. So if my grandma passed away in her sleep she had no past conflicts to work through?

Passing away in my sleep is the best way to bid farewell to life until the second lifetime comes.

I think so too. No suffering and you are comfortable because you are in your own home, in your own bed.
