Funeral Expenses




A Woman's husband dies. He had $30,000 to his name. After everything
is done at the funeral home and cemetery, she tells her closest friend
that there is none of the $30,000 left.

The friend says, "How can that be?

The widow says, "Well, the funeral cost me $6,500. And of course I
made a donation to the church. That was $500, and I spent another $500
for the wake, food and drinks, you know. .. The rest went for the
memorial stone."

The friend says, "$22,500 for the memorial stone? My God, how big is
it?"

The widow says, "Three carats".

Very funny, Judy. At least this way she'd see his memorial every day.

LOL!! I'd never thought of that kind of "stone." I really must talk my hubby out of being cremated & scattered at sea ;D
