Well yesterday, 10/20/10, My grandma had a stroke and was taken to the hospital. I came back from school, and was taken to see my grandma. It was too late, 3:58 pm was the time she died. I came later on. Oh it was a terrifying sight, seeing my grandma from age 0- to now. :'( Anyways, what was your reaction when you saw a person/family member past away in the hospital in front of your eyes?
R.I.P. Hope you rest in peace.

Kinda frightening. Had terrible dreams the night before we heard she was gonna die. She was perfectly healthy the night before, and then I had a dream that played out everything that would happen. It was like a bird's eye view in the dream, and I saw her die. Then, the next day, she died the exact same way she died in the dream. It was pretty much the most traumatizing dream of my life.
 
Really disturbing and morbid thread you got here, and I'm very sorry for your loss. Truly, I am.

But call Jack Bauer just before something happens; he'll figure something out.

No, all jokes aside, I seriously am sorry for you. Hope things get better and may your grandmother's spirit rest easy.
 
When my grandmother first died, I was too young to really understand what was going on. But when I got older, I became close to my grandpa. So when he died, it was really hard to take in, because it's hard to imagine someone your so close to dying.
Sorry about your loss.
 
When my grandpa was dying I didn't know what was going on. I was too young.
I remember crying a lot because he wasn't answering me in his hospital bed and I kept asking my mom why he wasn't talking. His eyes were open but he was almost gone. ):

Anyways I'm really sorry for your loss. Rest in peace.
 
my grandpa fell backwards while doing lawnwork, and hit his head(split the skull or something) on the cement/sidewalk.

i saw him in the hospital later that night, he was a vegetable, to put it crudely. his head was bandaged, i think he still had mental consciousness, but it wasn't enough to be considered alive or something.. he could see, hear, all that, he just couldn't really do anything. hence, vegetable.

they ended up taking him off life support/pulling the plug later that night, or maybe the next day. i only saw him for about ten minutes i think, don't really remember a lot other than the family (aunt/uncle/mom) were gathered around him. i don't remember if i cried, i may not have, i may have.

wasn't life-changing in retrospect/in my opinion, but i don't really remember it vividly. he was laying there, i guess.. funerals creep me out sometimes, though. if they're open casket and they look really "alive".

sorry for your loss, know you aren't alone, if you can feel any comfort in that sentiment.
 
I've never seen anybody die in front of me, though I can imagine it being one of the most painful things ever. ;_;
 
I've never been through something like that. But I'm sure it's terrible. =/

My heart needs a band-aid ):

never seen it. most of my relatives are still alive now/have died when I was young.
