A Father's Request to each of his 3 sons when he sent them to college. "I
feel it's my duty to provide you with the best possible education, and you
do not owe me anything for that. However, I want you to appreciate it. As a
gesture of appreciation, please each put $1,000 into my coffin when I die."
And so it happened. His sons became a doctor, a CPA, and a lawyer, each
successful financially. When their father died and they saw him in the
coffin, they remembered his wish.
First, the doctor stacked 10 crisp $100 bills onto the chest of the
deceased. Next, the CPA placed $1,000 there in 20 crisp $50 bills. Finally,
it was Ralphie, the heartbroken lawyer's turn. He slowly reached into his
pocket, removed his checkbook, wrote a check for $3,000, put it into his
father's coffin, and took the $2,000 cash.
The lawyer is now in Congress, probably from your district.
