“A deeply compassionate, extraordinarily sensitive, and objectively scientific exploration of the mystery of death, this book is a wonderful gift to caregivers, patients, family members, and every person who has ever thought about our human mortality and the meaning of life. This means, of course, that Forever Ours is a gift to us all.”
– Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God
Janis Amatuzio, MD, is a recognized authority in forensic medicine. She became a pathologist in part because it allowed her to help unravel the mystery of each person’s death. She found that by listening and talking to the loved ones of the deceased, she could offer them some sense of closure. In the course of her work, she has heard extraordinary stories from grieving family members, patients near death, police officers, and colleagues – stories of the spiritual and otherworldly experiences concerning the transition between life and death. These stories affirmed Dr. Amatuzio’s belief that, contrary to the attitudes of many in the medical community, there is more to death than just the cessation of breath.
From the experience of one of her first patients – who on the day of his death told of being “visited” by a friend who had been dead forty years – to incredible coincidences – such as two daughters thousands of miles apart experiencing unexplained sensations at the precise moment their father passed away – Dr. Amatuzio began recording the stories she heard. Forever Ours presents these heartfelt accounts, exploring the realms of visions, synchronicities, and communications on death’s threshold. Told in the voice of a compassionate scientist and medical expert who sees death every day, these stories eloquently convey the comfort Dr. Amatuzio has found in what she sees and hears. The book offers readers hope, comfort, and profound lessons on living.
