The grieving process, since the death of my husband, has been very difficult for me. After almost a year. I began to question the existence of God.
I lost my faith and was in complete despair. I new I couldn't and didn't want to go on if I was never to be with my husband and other departed family members. I couldn't face the idea that when we die, that's it! Little 'signs' began to put me on track. One was a TV documentary on the little town of Lily Dale, N.Y. I did some research about life after death and the grieving process. I got on Amazon.com and found this book. I like that it is fact based, was scientifically researched. It is beautifully written and easy to read. It encouraged me to do a lot of soul-searching. I have my faith back and believe I will be reunited with my husband again.. I'm still grieving but I'm not afraid any longer. I'm at peace knowing he is o.k. and that God has more for me to do here. I believe this book led me back to, and substantiated my core beliefs. For someone who does not believe in life after death, it's still a good read.

After the death of my son, this is the first thing to bring me some sense of comfort. Knowing that he is alive and well in a spiritual body and with other loved ones who have already "shed their cocoon" keeps me going. I know that he will be the one I am looking for when I die. If you have had a recent loss this book might comfort you too.

On Life After Death
Elizabeth Kubler Ross, M.D.
Author of On Death and Dying
with a Forward by Caroline Myss

"I consider her one of the heroines of our age." Caroline Myss

The book is based on the author's study of over twenty
thousand people who have had a near death experience.
Ross, of course, did the pioneering work on the five stages of dying that has
influenced the lives of countless people as they face the grieving process...

Selected Quotes form the book (a series of lectures):

"The opinion which other people have of you is their problem, not yours."

In order to quiet the skeptics we did a scientific experiment with blind people.
Those who had an out of body experience and
came back... --can tell you in detail what the color of the jewelry you were
wearing if you were present... the color and pattern of
your sweater or your tie and so on...

"...dying is only a transition to a different form of life."

"God is unconditional love."

All the hardships you face in life... If only you would realize that nothing comes
to you in life as a negative. All the trials and tribulations... are gifts to you. ...
It's like somebody has to temper the iron. It's an opportunity that you are given
to grow. This is the sole purpose of your existence on planet earth. You will not grow if you sit in a beautiful flower garden and somebody
brings you gorgeous food on a silver platter. But you will grow if you are sick, if you are in pain, if you experiences losses and if you do not put your head in the sand but take the pain and learn to accept it is not a curse or a punishment, but as a gift to you as a very very special specific purpose.

I recently lost my oldest son after an 8 month battle with lung cancer. I was with him throughout the whole ordeal and even though I have deep religious formation, it was very difficult and still is dealing with his passing away. This book has given me the assurance that my son is indeed in a much better place and that he is not alone, but instead is surrounded by the persons he loved most: his grandparents and uncle and that someday we shall meet again.

Of all the books I bought to help me deal with the death of my brother, this one gave me the most comfort of all of them. For instance, blind people who had flatlined and came back could state, in detail, what people were wearing in the room, the colors, and their jewelry. If that isn't proof of life after death, I don't know what is. It proves that oxygen-deprivation cannot have caused a blind person to know what was in the room. This was very comforting to me, and I applaud Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross for her years of extensive research. This book is a keeper. I will put it with my Will for my children to read after I am gone one day.

An amazing book for those of us who have lost loved ones, and for those of us who wonder what death my be like. This is a great follow up to her book, On Grief and Grieving: Finding the Meaning of Grief Through the Five Stages of Loss. While a shorter book, it is more pointed in the message that the death of ourselves and our loved ones is merely a transition into another form of existance. Like her book on Grief and Grieving, I find myself in tears as I read this book with the lovely stories told in these pages.

This book is not written from any specific religion slant, it is written from a more basic human side. She has collected many years worth of personal experience in spending time with those who are dying, and has walked away many points that would help anyone dealing with loved ones who have died, or may be dying. I would encourage anyone to read this book that has open questions about what is it like to die, is death painful, do you die alone, are there near death experiences, and so much more. It is a must read.
