(Below is an excerpt from my book Becoming Dead Right: A Hospice Volunteer in Urban Nursing Homes. )
“What did you do today?” I asked Rose after feeding her.
“Me? I’ve been spending time with my people. I enjoyed myself a lot.”
“Hey, that’s great. Did your relatives drive in from Chicago?”
“No, I went to heaven. It’s the nicest place, all clean and bright with beautiful scenery everywhere. I saw my family and plenty of my friends. They all wore long white gowns.”
“Wow! I guess that’s a place you’ll want to visit again.”
“Oh, I’ll definitely be going back. I’m planning to go stay there when I die. I’ll see if I can help you get in, too.”
“Thanks. I would really appreciate that.”
Some say these spirit sightings are chemical reactions in the brain or simply imaginary. Many say they are angels, while others say they are ghosts. What do you think about this mysterious phenomenon of spirit sightings?
