When a person passes away, family members and friends want to know the last thing the person was doing, the spirit they were in, and what the last words were, if any. This is with the hope to know that there was joy and peace before the individual left this world.
More than anything, it is a comforting thought for those left behind. When a famous celebrity dies, this is no exception. Today, a large majority of actors, singers, writers, and reality TV have an active social media account. This allows them, like the rest of us to share a little more of themselves, their feelings, ideas, and questions.
There are celebs who tweeted prior to their death. Some proved to be prophetic while others were serene and peaceful.
