His will provided $40,000 for an elaborate funeral.
As the last guests departed the affair, his wife Janis turned to her oldest and dearest friend.
‘Well, I’m sure Henry would be pleased,’ she said..
‘I’m sure you’re right,’ replied Brenda , who lowered her voice and leaned in closer.
‘How much did this really cost?’
‘All of it,’ said Janis .. ‘Forty thousand.’
‘No way,’ Brenda exclaimed! ‘I mean, it was very nice, but $40,000?’
Janis answered, ‘The funeral was $6,500. I donated $500 to the church. The whiskey, wine and snacks were another $500.. The rest went for the Memorial Stone.’
Brenda computed quickly. ‘$32,500 for a Memorial Stone?
How big is it?’
