      Thanks for the question wixie 🙂 It’s a pleasant idea, but unfortunately, it’s not true. If your brain had the power to give you a little extra time after death that would be something scientists would want to study and find out about. Your question did remind me of a book I first read when I was probably around your age though called ‘The five people you meet in heaven’ (I’ll put a link at the end of this :)). The plot is very much like your question, so you might enjoy it; it’s about somebody reliving their most important memories when they die. It’s fiction, but it’s a nice story 🙂 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Five_People_You_Meet_in_Heaven
