Will for an elaborate funeral

Sam died and left $50,000 in his will for an elaborate funeral.

As the last attenders left, Sam’s wife Rose turned to her oldest friend Sadie and said: “Well, I’m sure Sam would be pleased.”

“I’m sure you’re right,” replied Sadie, who leaned in close and lowered her voice to a whisper, “Tell me, how much did it really cost?”

“All of it,” said Rose Fifty thousand.”

“No!” Sadie exclaimed “I mean, it was very nice, but really… $50,000?!”

Rose nodded “The funeral was $6,500 I donated $500 to the church for the priest’s services,

The food and drinks were another $500 And the rest went towards the memorial stone.”

Sadie computed quickly, “$42,500 for a memorial stone? Exactly how big is it?”

“Seven and a half carats.”
