Sometime after George died, his widow, Trish, was finally able to speak about what a thoughtful and wonderful man her late husband had been.
"George thought of everything," she told a group of her friends. "Just before he died, he called me to his bedside, handed me three envelopes, and said, 'Darling, I have put all my last wishes in these three envelopes. After I am dead, please open them and do exactly as I have instructed. Then I can rest in peace'."
"What was in the envelopes?" her friends asked.
"The first envelope contained $5,000 with a note, 'Please use this money to buy a nice casket.' So, I bought a beautiful mahogany casket with such a comfortable lining that I know George is resting very comfortably," she said.
"The second envelope contained $10,000 with a note, 'Please use this for a nice funeral.' I arranged a very dignified funeral for George and bought all his favorite foods for everyone attending," she continued.
"And the third envelope?" asked her friends.
"The third envelope contained $25,000 with a note, 'Please use this to buy a nice stone'," she replied.
Holding her hand in the air and showing off her ten carat diamond ring, Trish asked, "So, do you like my stone?"
