"It's 50 years since Swiss-born pioneer in death studies
Elisabeth KΓΌbler-Ross wrote her classic text, On Death and Dying.
The book introduced readers to the "five stages of grief" model she had developed to explain how people cope with death.

Then in 1995, following a series of strokes, KΓΌbler-Ross was confronted with the prospect of her own death.
Her son,
Ken Ross, says though his mother dedicated her life to articulating grief to others, when faced with her own grief, she still had a big lesson to learn.
Elisabeth's son Ken Ross ironically said he had a 
near fatal heart attack at the age of 42 while flying;-)
As soon as I had written this post the latest 'Skeptiko' podcast hit my iTunes Apple Podcast list and it was about NDEs with 
David Sunfellow -
David Sunfellow, Can the Scientific Study of NDEs Reveal the Purpose of Life? |413|
