I subscribed to this site to specifically address the "tear" issue. It is the only other place I have seen any postings related to the subject. I saw two separate tears fall from the face of my dying father, and I am obsessed with finding more about it. He was in a heavy morphine drip for an inoperable subdural hematoma and completely motionless. At 4am, with all of us in a vigil (fighting sleep at his bedside) his breathing slowly stopped and my mother rushed to his side. Two separate tears fell down from his face, one from each eye. My mother went into something I can only describe as a moaning death howl. She was moaning goodbye to his and thanked him for sending us a sign that he was with us. I relive it every day and I am on the edge of getting counseling or other help dealing with it.
