This is the last few minutes of Dad's life. You can hear the death rattle and then I sit down and sing Amazing Grace to him and talk to him about all the spirits of relatives who are waiting to greet him as well as reminding my Aunt Jeanette who had recently passed to join dad as he goes into the light of Heaven. After dad takes his last breath when the counter is at 6 20 a.m. look closely and you'll see the blinking orb rise up and pause and then continue on to the right.
Mom had spent most of the night with him and our Caregiver, Alyssa, as they listened to the death rattle and prayed. At about 6 a.m. mom went to lay down and she figured that it wasn't going to happen very quickly. Suddenly about 6 a.m. I woke up and came upstairs to check dad. I had not known mom was up all night so I went to her bedroom and told her that the time was almost ready for Dad to pass. She decided to let me sit with him and said to go on. She later said she had no recollection of this conversation with me. I believe that Dad waited until she was out of the room so her energy and love was not holding him to the Earth. When I sang the song to let him go he passed quickly. Go with God and the Angels dad and we will see you around.

This is Mark who posted this video. I am overwhelmed by the emotion, prayers, love, and support that total strangers are giving me and my family. I feel the energy when I read the comments. Amazing. Humanity is still good to the core.
The video was only made public since I wanted to share it with family and friends and I did not think it would go much further. It was not planned to film his death but only discovered later from the IP camera footage put in place to keep track of caregivers. Opinions vary on the orb. I understand that. I know what I believe it is and do not particularly mind if others concur.
Death brings emotion from extreme sadness and grief to elation for the person has gone to heaven. They run the gamete in all the comments. While I appreciate the condolences and shared sadness expressed I feel compelled to provide some context to our family and the death experience.
My dad Joe had a wonderful life and a spiritually rich and supportive death. He raised us 6 kids with faith and knowledge of God and we have a certainty of spirits that proceed on to heaven. We had 2 years to say goodbye as he gradually slipped away mentally. Never in any pain, surrounded by the love of family and his wife of 76 years. Mom was ready. She sat with his body for several hours to pray and to say her final goodbyes. We as siblings held hands and sang and prayed around his bed after he died. Death is a transition. As happy as a birth is into this realm a death here may be the beginning of the birth in the next existence. At any rate, death will eventually come to each of our doorways. Why spend this life fearing and holding grief around this inevitable doorway. Make the exit your friend so the life here can be boundless and unattached.
I am truly blessed to have been led to dads bedside to send him off with music, love, and good energy. Of course I believe I was guided to be there. It was a privilege and honor to be a part of that magical, mystical transition. I am also thrilled to feel the energy and love of the many comments here due to the inadvertent sharing of this video that has been viewed over 150,000 times as of this writing. Thank you one and all and prayers and energy. I send prayers back to you that you should feel the joy and love of this life that includes the miracle of passing into the next.
