A woman's husband dies. He has only $20,000 to his name. After everything is
done at the funeral home and cemetery, she tells her closest friend that
there is no money left.
The friend says, "How can that be? You told me he still had $20,000 a few
days before he died. How could you be broke?"
The widow says, "Well, the funeral home cost $6,000. And of course, I made
the obligatory donation to the temple, so that was another $2,000.
The rest went for the memorial stone."
The friend says, "$12,000 for the memorial stone? My gosh, how big is it?"
Extending her left hand, the widow says, "Three carats."
