It was about 6 o'clock in the morning of the 1st of June in 2001 when I wake up from a strange way of breathtaking of my wife Wilma.
I immediately saw it was bad. I called 112 (similar to your 911) and after I called my wife stopped breathing The ambulance was within 10 minutes at our home at started reanimation. They tried long and just when they wanted to stop they got a heartbeat/rhythm.
She was brought to the hospital, but the damage was to big and finally she died in the afternoon.
After some time I went home with family. When I was sitting in the chair suddenly I felt a moment of great peace, it felt if I was told that it was good.
I liked the moment of it also made me confused because I felt almost happy.
That is rather strange if you lose your wife at the age of 35 years.
Later it helped me a lot.
I have to say that I already believed in life after death and I already read books at that time.
Never the less the experience was big and I didn't think one moment of experiences at the time my wife died. At the contrary, I was sad and angry when it happened, and them at home, about an hour after she passed away I got that beautiful feeling of peace and calmness.
