I think that "near-death experiences" are similar to dreams. Just as dreams can seem very realistic, so do NDEs.

Man judges a person by his past deeds, and administers penalties for his wrongdoing. God judges a person by his present character, and disciplines him that he may become righteous.

I had an interesting experience with NDE (not a personal one).

Many years ago I was on a flight from Richmond, Virginia, headed home to Oregon. I was assigned an aisle seat, a nicely dressed gentleman was in the window seat, with an empty seat between us. I was reading a Christian book of some sort and laid it on the middle seat between us with the book open, cover up, (bait, hoping to start a conversation). He took the bait and we had a very interesting flight. Turned out he was Dr. George G. Ritchie, a prominent psychiatrist and also as I recall an ordained Methodist minister, definitely a Christian man. Anyway he had experienced, in his telling, an NDE, when he had died and been pronounced dead on an operating table. He had written a book about his experience titled "Return From Tomorrow" which is still available on Amazon. The book was the first experience with NDE for Dr. Raymond Moody which led him to investigate over 150 cases and write his book "Life after Life" and other books.

I have always been somewhat skeptical of stories of NDE but Dr. Ritchie had a credible sounding story of what he had experienced, so I got the book for LOML and she gave me the report. Not My type of book.

Wow - quite an accomplishment - the 60 years of marriage!

I knew Paidion was older, but I did not think you were as well. I always pictured you to be in your 40s or 50s.
