A Jewish woman's husband dies
A Jewish woman's husband dies. He only had $30,000 to his name. After everything was done at the funeral home and cemetery, she tells her closest friend that there is none of the $30,000 left. The friend said, "How can that be?"
The widow said, "Well, the funeral cost me $6,500. And of course I made a donation to the shul ..that was $500, and I spent another $500 for food and drinks for the people when I was sitting shiva. The rest went for the memorial stone."
Her friend said, "$22,500 for the memorial stone? My, how big is it?"
The widow said, "Three carats."
