@farmerman,
Oh WOW, OH WOW---Steve Jobs (sometime last year) >>

I would expect a dying man to think about what is going to happen next, not engage in side issues that have nothing to do with it, or maybe the shock of realization dulls their senses, who knows. When My first wive died of cancer, her last thought was about how sorry she was to leave us.

Well General John Sedgwick was standing and not on his death bed when he stated the following just before having his head blown off by a sniper but it still is interesting statement in my opinion if slightly off tropic.

Last words......."They couldn't hit an elephant at this dist..."

Beecher's would seem to relate to what comes next, but since one is alive when one utters last words, they can only be speculative about the afterlife. Sorry, but no clues are available from the living and the dead can't talk.
