Last Thoughts Of Dying Friend
If you have been challenged with someone close to you transitioning out of their body (dying), you’ll want to read this. Feel free to share.
On May 4th 2017, a dear man, Ralph Diggs, transitioned out of his body at age 85. He was my step-father’s father and had been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.
A few months after his diagnosis, he had a stroke and was gone a couple weeks later.
This man was one of the most positive people I’ve ever met. And what is most amazing about this man in his final days are his last coherent thoughts.
Here are the words from my step-father, Ralph’s son, Steve Diggs:
My father never was very deep or spiritual or religious. He mostly liked sports and music and his three wives (he was widowed twice). He was a practical man who loved living and told me he never really thought about the afterlife. So it was delightful and surprising when this happened five days before he passed.
My sister Julie and I were visiting after dark. Because of his two strokes his speech was quite impaired and he could not construct complete sentences, only short snippets of words.
Out of nowhere he looked at Julie and said, “I think something magical is about to happen. I think there’s an order to things and we’re always supposed to have new experiences.”
Then he looked at me and asked, “Steve, do you think there’s a special opening for me?” I said, “Yes Dad. I do.”
Then he looked at both of us and said, “I think this is going to be easy.”
We all smiled and sat together with a feeling of peace and well-being.
He fell into a coma and transitioned from his body a few days later.
I hope this touches your heart like it did mine.
I feel life is supposed to be easy and fun and sometimes we make it too hard.
I’ve seen women go their entire life putting themselves down because of the way they look.
What if “there’s an order to things and we’re always supposed to have new experiences.”
Let your new experience start today by looking at yourself in the mirror and looking for one thing you can appreciate.
Do it again tomorrow and again the next day and watch how your life changes as you have a new experience! =)
Blessings to you Ralph on your next adventure!
