Do you think people can sense when they are going to die?

I remember when I visited my grandma a few years ago, she told me with panic in her eyes “I don’t want to die.” Then a week later she did. I also had a friend who said he didn’t think he’d live to be 20 years old, he was killed by drunk driver at 16. What are your opinions?

    And how many times have you heard someone say something along the lines of, “I could just die” or “I’ll kill you” without either of those things happening?

    pioneering U.S. East Coast surfer (and horticulturist) has left us. Dudley Whitman’s brother Bill has passed on at age 92:

    [Excerpt from: "Surfer, horticulturist William Whitman dies," BY DAVID SMILEY, MIAMI HERALD, June 1, 2007 ]

    – The surfboard Bill Whitman built in 1932, the first of its kind in Florida, helped earn him a spot in the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame.

    – The underwater camera he invented and patented in 1951 shot footage that ended up in the Oscar-winning documentary “The Sea Around Us.”

    – And the 600 truckloads of rich, acidic soil he had dumped in his Bal Harbour backyard in the 1950s nurtured a world-famous grove of exotic, tropical fruits.

    – Throughout his 92 years, the horticulturist scoured the world for tropical fruits — breadfruit, Kohala longan and a 40-pound jackfruit. All in all, Whitman is credited with introducing 80 varieties to the United States and donating more than $5 million to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden.

    William ”Bill” Francis Whitman Jr. died in his home Wednesday.

    He was born June 30, 1914 in Chicago, but as a boy the family moved to an oceanfront home in Miami Beach.

    In 1932, he and his younger brother Dudley Whitman wanted to surf Hawaiian-style. But there weren’t any surf shops selling boards anywhere in Florida, let alone the East Coast. So, the brothers made their own, according to the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame, of which both are members.

    The elder Whitman continued to surf well into his 80s.

    ”He was probably one of the greatest underwater men that ever lived,” said brother Stanley Whitman.

    Added brother Dudley: “He was more fish than man.”

    An example of the brothers’ 80-plus pound surfboards can be seen in their private museum at the Whitman-owned Bal Harbour Shops.

    On their trips to the Pacific after World War II, the brothers learned new trades, including spearfishing, which they introduced to the East Coast and Caribbean, Dudley Whitman said.

    In 1951, Bill Whitman wanted to show friends back in South Florida a glimpse of the South Pacific, so he created the first underwater camera and began shooting film below the surface, Dudley said.

    Early films earned the brothers nominations for Academy Awards. They sold some of the scenes they shot to filmmakers for use in the 1952 documentary “The Sea Around Us.” The film won an Oscar.

    ”We won the academy award and we weren’t even in the business,” Dudley Whitman said.

    Despite the accolades, Whitman was possibly best known for his expertise and accomplishments in horticulture.

    He devoted himself to bringing back to South Florida many of the exotic fruit species he found in the South Pacific.

    He found the sand and marl in his own backyard unfit to nurture the fragile plantlife, so he had 600 truckloads of richacidic soil taken from Greynolds Park area and dumped in his Bal Harbour backyard.

    He continued to scour the world — from the Amazon to Borneo to the Australian rain forests — for species he could bring back to United States.

    His traveling partner on many of the trips Whitman made late in his life was Steve Brady. By that time, Brady said, Whitman could hardly walk and used a wheelchair.

    But that was no deterrent.

    ”If it involved his passions he would go to the ends of the earth,” Brady said.

    In 1999, Whitman donated $1 million to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, where the Whitman Pavilion was erected in his honor. In 2003, he added $4 million to endow the tropical fruit program.

    He also helped found the Rare Fruit Council in 1955, and served as president until 1960.

    In 2001, Whitman authored the book, “Five Decades with Tropical Fruits: A Personal Journey.”

    Whitman’s accomplishments earned him an honorary doctorate from the University of Florida’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in 2004. He earned his bachelor’s in administration from the school in 1939.

    A public memorial will be held at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in November. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden.

    In addition to brothers Dudley and Stanley, Whitman is survived by wife Angela Whitman and children Christopher Whitman, Pamela Whitman Mattson and Eric Whitman.
    [Excerpt of: "Bill Whitman, 92, Is Dead; Scoured the Earth for Rare Fruit," By DAVID KARP, NEW YORK TIMES, June 4, 2007 with Correction Appended ]

    William F. Whitman Jr., a self-taught horticulturist who became renowned for collecting rare tropical fruits from around the world and popularizing them in the United States, died Wednesday at his home in Bal Harbour, Fla. He was 92.

    Mr. Whitman, who had suffered strokes and a heart attack, died in his sleep, his wife, Angela, said.

    with the amout of posibilities the only way possible would be called a coinsidence. what i do believe is that negative energy attracts negative forces. think positive. fearing death is not an option. one day now or one day later. you will die. im not saying its a good feeling. but no you cant call it and this isnt final destination.

  • sync says:

    i think people on there death do my aunties husband had cancer and he was freaking out saying he was goin to be a ghost he died a day later
    maybe you have visions

  • Dawn W says:

    Yes I believe that some do sense when their time is coming.

  • greenjupiter7 says:

    I can agree with that, one of my grandmothers (with a couple of greats in there) had that same sense before she passed away. Before my great-aunt was born, she told my great-grandmother that she would be gone before the baby’s birth. True to form, a few months later, she passed away.

  • I love pandora! says:

    I remember crying at the age of 4 that I didn’t want to die- I have a very strong feeling I am going to die young (I am 27). I can’t live my life around that, but it’s a strong feeling I do have.

    I think some older people get to the point where they don’t want to fight to stay alive, so they kind of know the time is near. Not too sure though

  • TRUTH Speaker says:

    Yes, i believe everyone is warned…..i do not believe they know the moment …But yeah i believe they are Warned of that event…..and are given time to Repent…….and a chance to Receive the Atonement for them…Jesus Christ.

  • The Apostle Paul says:

    If you fall from a 30 story building, and see concrete rushing up to meet you, it is a pretty fair bet that person senses that they are going to die……
