While most of us imagine that our last words will be written down and remembered for generations to come, most of the time they're not the groundbreaking inspirational quotes we hoped to conjure up from the white light...

Regardless of whether or not you believe in an after-life or the "great beyond," people who are faced with their imminent death can sometimes feel the need to absolve themselves of heavy family secrets. Confessing a dark or shocking scandal to the family surrounding your deathbed can be a dramatic and poetic show, but whoever has to carry around that new burden is often faced with a dilemma. Should you tell you aunt that the person she thought was her mother all her life is actually her grandmother? Will you ever recover from knowing your great grandmother's secret Christmas cookie ingredient? How many confessions about spicy affairs or workplace romances do hospice nurses listen to every day?
