"Gone From My Sight: The Dying Experience"
There's a great booklet called "Gone From My Sight: The Dying Experience" by Barbara Karnes, RN. Many hospice organizations hand out this 14-page booklet. Copies can be purchased for $3/copy (that includes shipping) from:

. There's a new booklet on her website called "Eleventh Hour." That might be interesting.
In the "Gone From My Sight" booklet, Ms. Karnes devotes two pages to the actual signs one sees that indicate dying -- from one to three months before up to a few minutes before. I have seen these "Guidelines" posted in various places but no where on a public site. I won't post them here because it may be illegal to do so.
Buy the book or ask hospice for it.
