In afrikaans they say "die oe breek", that is an indication that death is imminent and I have seen it when my aunt passed away. I also heard the last "breath", I think it happens when death is very slow -i.e. the heart is beating, but there is basically no blood being pumped and no circulation. My aunts circulation stopped a couple of hours before she passed away. I am really sorry about your dad, but at least you were there.
