Dr. Amatuzio be-gan gathering these stories early in her career as a forensic pathologist and coroner in Minnesota. Here she emphasizes that these experiences are life-changing moments for the living, making their time on earth more satisfying and helping them focus on the important things in life.
Dr. Amatuzio relates the story of the man who "meets" his kidney donor and sends a message to the donor's family; of a woman who hears her husband's song on the radio and experiences the sensation of dancing with him again; of a sick dog who helps an elderly grandmother recover from a hip fracture and who finds a way to sleep beside her one last time; of Monarch butterflies who attend the funeral of a young girl who loved them; and of many other profound occurrences.
