A Pricey Funeral

After James passed away, his will provided $35,000 for an elaborate funeral.

After the the services, the widow’s sister asked, “How much did this really cost?”

“All of it,” said the widow. “All thirty-five thousand.”

“No!” the sister exclaimed. “I mean, it was very nice, but $35,000?”

The widow explained, “The funeral was $10,000. I donated $2500 to the church. The wake, food, and drinks were another $500. The rest went for the memorial stone.”

“$22,000 for a memorial stone?” balked the sister. “My God, how big is it?!”

With a wry smile, the widow replied, “Two and a half carats.”
