The 10 Best Last Words Ever Uttered

What will me dying words be?  Am I the only person who thinks about it?  I know it’s a bit on the morbid side,  but I really do wonder sometimes.  Think about how important they are…they are the last words you will ever utter in this lifetime.  EVER.  Sometimes I hope mine will be graceful and profound, sometimes sincere and overflowing with love, sometimes hilariously clever…but, if I know me (which I’m pretty confident I do) they will probably be something funny mixed with a little bit of something that resembles wisdom and a ton of love.  At least I hope they will be something profound, loving and witty.  Words are important and have power.  Your last ones should be fantastic. (No pressure.  Ha!)

What if you aren’t blessed with the gift of the gab?  What if your forte is math and words elude you?  I have  a little inspiration for you.  Here are 10 of the best last words to ever pass through people’s lips.  Be forewarned:  some are hilarious, some beautiful and all would be hard to top…but I, for one, am willing to try when my day comes.
