As 63-year-old Margaret Smith lay dying in Vanderbilt University Medical Center, nurse Olivia Neufelder tried to make some of her last moments on Earth as tranquil as possible. She had been waiting for a liver transplant, which doctors said she wasn't healthy enough to receive.

The disastrous minute was gotten on camera by Margaret's family companion, Crystal Hamilton, and shows Olivia singing Dancing In The Sky by Dani and Lizzy while holding her patient's hand.

Smith's daughter, Megan, shared the video on Facebook over the weekend, saying Nuefelder sat with her mother for hours and "sang a very special song to my sweet mother to comfort her". Smith wrote. "Words can not describe the appreciation and love we feel for nurse Olivia who mom calls her angel!" Both Smith and Neufelder were overcome with emotion during the clip.

The video was posted on October 23 by Smith's best friend, Crystal Hamilton Roberts, and has since reached over 13 million views.

"Miss Marg has touched my heart in such an indescribable way." said Neufelder. "You truly are a beam of light and I can not thank you enough for the compassion and care and love you shared for my mother".

Smith was being transferred to a nursing home, as her health deteriorated. "God bless you Olivia!"

Margaret reportedly died on Wednesday, according to WFSB-TV.

In a Facebook post she wrote, "she would sing this to Margaret whenever Margaret asked her".

"I pray this story helps people find comfort through a dark time they may be going through", she told 1010 WINS.

"If all nurses would take the time and Care for patients like Ms. Olivia I believe we would see a lot more healing!"

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help Margaret's family with funeral expenses.
