OPRAH: And tell me how this whole process changed your relationship with death. ELIZABETH: Well, it’s something I think about and have since I was a little kid. Fear of death. Wanting to know what’s on the other side. OPRAH: Mm-hmm. ELIZABETH: Fascination with death. And watching her take her last breaths, watching her change in the last days leading up to her death where she finally knew she was gonna die, because even when all signs were pointing, you’re gonna die, you don’t believe it. But when she finally got, this is it. I’m — I’m heading out. And she was in her full right mind, and so I watched her become not only accepting of death, but ready for it. Almost excited for it. OPRAH: Really. ELIZABETH: And she was not a believer in any way, shape, or form. But she began to say things, like, see that break in the clouds? That’s where I’m going. And her sense of death changed, and it really gave me a stronger faith that we go somewhere afterwards.
