Joe passed away. His Will provided $30,000 for an elaborate funeral.

As the last guests departed the affair, his wife, Betty, turned to her oldest friend.

“Well, I’m sure Joe would be pleased,” she said.

“I’m sure you’re right,” replied Jody, who then lowered her voice and leaned in close to whisper.  “How much did this really cost?”

“All of it,” said Betty. “Thirty thousand.”

“No!” Jody exclaimed. “I mean, it was very nice, but $30,000?”

“The funeral was $6,500. I donated $500 to the church. The wake, food, and drinks were another $500. And the rest went for the memorial stone.”

Jody computed quickly.

“$22,500 for a memorial stone? My God, how big is it?!”

‘”Two and a half carats.”

Aah . . . that’s better!
