When I heard of reincarnation, the ability to die and come back as a animal, I dug up a worm in the lawn and said,"Is that you, Uncle John?".

When I was young, I never could understand how they could get the people pictured on the obituary pages to smile. After all, they were dead!

There is a girl in our Year 3 class (8 yrs old) whose nan has sadly passed away recently due to a stroke.

We were obvoiously concerned about her, particulary as she was displaying some really odd behaviour soon after the death - she kept walking up to her class teacher, and gently patting her on the arm and then standing back and staring at her intently.

It took a while, but we eventually worked out that she didn't understand why her nan had died, and was seeing if she could kill her teacher by giving her a 'stroke'!

When I was 5 years old my grandmother died and when I saw her in the casket with the bottom part closed, I thought that the funeral home cut off the bottom part of their legs so they couldn't walk after they died. My dad told me that even after my grandmother was gone, she could still see me so I had nightmares that she was standing by my bed watching me sleep.

When I was a little girl I used to believe that when someone died and went to Heaven, they would literally have to travel to the sky. After watching a lot of cartoons the most logical way as I could see it, was for someone to sit at the top of a tree that had been tied to the ground, and then somone would chop over the rope and the person would be flung up to Heaven like in the cartoons!

I used to believe that everyone had a certain amount of oxygen in their body that they breath throughout your life, and when you run out of oxygen, you die. When I was little I would try not to breath too much so I would live long.

My friends had dared me to put one of my dad's disposable razers against my throat, which I did, I thought I was going to die that night.

You know the scene in "Star Wars, Return of the Jedi" where Yoda dies? I was born the year that movie came out (1983), so I was quite young when I saw it for the first time. Because Yoda's body disappeared when he died, I therefore believed that whenever ANYONE died, their body disappeared. Don't ask me what I thought cemeteries were for, because I didn't exactly think this through.

I used to believe that dying only happened in fairy tales (or if you were murdered). It was a belief that I clung onto with such absolute conviction that I can remember the very afternoon I asked my dad about it and where we were in the car (he was driving me to the mall) when he told me that everybody dies.

I used to think that when you died in the hospital, two nurses would take your body outside on a stretcher, put you down on the lawn, and watch as you floated up to Heaven.

When I was in the second grade, I remember my teacher telling the class her mother was 99years old turning 100 next month. I bluntly shouted, "then she's going to die soon." The only reason why I said that was because I thought everyone dies when they turn 100years old.

I wasn't all that young when I believed this.
A few years back, there was a reality show called Murder in Small Town X. One of the contestants was the "murderer", and the object of the game was to figure it out. The contestants were eliminated by being "murdered".
I wondered why anyone would sign up for that show if they were going to die.

When I was very young I believed that people who were brought to the hospital were already dead, and that the hospital was where dead people were brought back to life.

Once, when I was three, a distant relative of ours died. My mom and I went to the funeral after having a long conversation about death and what happens in terms that (she thought) a three-year-old could understand. She asked me, "So you know where people go when they die, right?" She expected me to respond with "Heaven". I nodded, very solemnly, and then replied with, "They go to Florida."

When I was younger, the prayer that goes "and if I die before I wake, I pray to God my soul to take" used to terrify me. Every night I'd be afraid of dying in my sleep, so I'd never say that part of the prayer. Eventually I realized that if I slept with my hand in front of my nose and mouth, I would be able to feel it when I stopped breathing and would wake up in time to stop myself from dying.
