This is not a very nice subject to discuss but I've taken a few kids hunting and they sometimes ask me, "what does it feel like to die?"
Usually this happens when they are holding the first bird they killed. I recall thinking the same thing as I held the first pheasant I had shot with my grampa's Model 1897 Winchester. I remember that I cried because I had just killed such a beautiful creature.
I've had a lifetime of killing birds and after thinking about this for quite some time I came up with a really good answer to the question, "what does it feel like to die?"
When a child asks me that question I reply, "it probably feels like it did when you were born, only backwards".
Can anyone honestly say what it feels like to be born? Not born again...I mean when your mom shoots you out her vag.
It is a great answer to a question we all have asked at one time or other.

My dad was a funeral director. I imagine that the reality of death is a horrible, terrifying shock. Probably a lot like falling, but longer.
Mortality is a terrible to think about.

Death is a natural part of life. In fact, death may be the natural order of things and life is nothing but an aboration. You did not exist before you were born since the beginning of time (eternity?). And, you will not exist for eternity after you die. You're life is just a tiny bit of flatulent noise in the cosmos. Not a big deal really.

You can't have life without death, the 2 go hand in hand. However, as a Christian, death is a gain as we have eternal life through Christ. So in the eyes of a Christian mortal death isn't horrible its suprisingly glorious.
