John died after a hard life of drinking and drugging.
His will provided $50,000 for an elaborate funeral.
As the last guests departed the funeral, his wife Maggie turned to her oldest and dearest friend. 'Well, I'm sure John would be very happy,' she said.
'I'm sure you're right,' replied Joan, who lowered her voice and leaned in close.
'How much did this everything cost if you don't mind me asking?'
'All of it,' said Maggie . 'Fifty thousand.'
'No!' Joan responded. 'I mean, it was a very beautiful funeral, but $50,000?'
Maggie replied, 'The funeral was $9,500. I donated $1000 to church. The whiskey, wine and food were another $1000. The rest went for the Memorial Stone.'
Joan added things quickly. '$38,500 for a Memorial Stone? It must be beautiful!'
Maggie show her the Memorial Stone.
