Is seems as if my dad knew that he was going to die. The summer I turned 19 years old, I was living about 3 hours away from him and I was missing him alot. I called and asked him to come visit me. I couldn't go visit him because I didn't have a car. Anyway, a few days later he did. That whole evening he hugged me the whole time. He stayed talking to me, giving advice, and he even told me that the only thing he asked of me was that I never lost my faith. As he was leaving, I walked him to his car and he was hugging me so tight that I remember feeling as if I was choking. Then he told me that he "loved me with all his heart". That night he died of a heart attack.
Later when I met up with my sisters, they said that a few days before, he had told my brother-in-laws, their husbands, to take care of his daughters (my sisters) and he had given my sisters a big kiss on their foreheads (which he had never done before.)

Yes, I do believe that in certain situations or with certain people they know when they are going to do. My husband's grandfather had to have open heart surgery in November. They put him in a nursing home for a few weeks until he had enough strength to go back home. It was on December 10, he was having a really good day. He ate well, his vitals were great, and he had improved strength, but he kept saying how he was ready to go. We took it as he was ready to go home. After visiting with him, we went out to eat and then came back. We ran into the nurse who said he had just finished eating a good dinner and he had ate about 80% of his meal. By the time we got to his room he was already gone. I really do think that he knew he was going to die that day.
