People near death are often visited by spirits, and they often see the spirits of those that have passed.

Short story of a black dog.
An ill girl. Quite young. She was in bed, sleeping and the maid came in with some soup, she suddenly dropped the soup at the shock of seeing a huge black dog at the end of her bed. She called for the master, but when he got there, the dog was gone. the next day, in the morning, she was dead. How wierd is that?
