If you have never experienced a last moment yet, let me tell you they occur like any other moment during any given day.  You rarely know when a last moment will  happen.  Looking back there might have been signs a last moment was about to occur but you may have missed the signs.  You might suspect if there is a situation where a loved one has been ill that a last moment might occur, but you can never really be sure when.  If you are not following my description, this experience is that last moment when you say, “see you later” or “I’ll talk to you tomorrow”  and then you never, ever see the person again.  This moment is the memory of seeing or speaking to a parent before he or she passes away.  This moment is the memory of a goodbye to a really good friend who has an accidental death.  I promise you that last moments are moments you’ll remember forever.
