Far away in Switzerland in the mid-nineteen twenties, triplets were born to a family that expected only one child. Weighing in at about two pounds, Elisabeth Kubler was not expected to live. But the love and care of her parents coupled with the indomitable spirit of Elisabeth herself gave the world one of its noblest daughters.

Best selling author (she has written over sixteen books), lecturer, teacher, physician and philosopher, Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross is perhaps the world’s foremost authority on death and dying — yet there is nothing somber about Elisabeth

John: You have been close to death many times. Did you not have any fear of it?

Elisabeth: Death never frightened me. It is as much a part of living as anything else. I have faced it so many times it is no longer an enemy.

John: Do you believe in the continuation of life after death?

Elisabeth: I not only believe it, I know it. I have always seemed to know it. I also know that life is forever.
