   2. Most Significant Death or Loss

            the same as your earliest loss, describe why it is also the most significant.)
        b) How old were you and what are the things you remember most about it?
        c) What did you learn about death or loss from this experience?
        d) How has this loss affected your attitude toward loss or death and dying?

   3. Near Death Experience

      d) How has this experience influenced your life, your perspective on life and death, or
         who you are today?

       Note: If you can’t think of a true “near death experience” that you’ve had, ask your
       family members. It may have happened when you were very young. Otherwise, you can
       discuss the near death experience of someone who is close to you.
