Experience description:  

My mom had been in a coma for about 2.5 day, she was slack jawed, her lungs rattling.  I'd just cleaned her mouth out with a sponge on a stick.  She suddenly grabbed the stick with her teeth.  Trying to get her to let it go, I told her she "had to let go." She did finally.  I walked into the kitchen to drop it into the trash and heard her say, just "overhead",  "always remember how much I loved life" it was her voice.  When I got back to her room I discovered she'd passed.
