Mr. James Barricks, was a rich old man was dying from a rare disease. On his deathbed, he called for his insurance agent, doctor and preacher:
“I trusted each you my entire life. Now I want to give each of you $30,000 cash in an envelope to put in my grave. I want to take it with me.”
Mr. Barricks died and at the funeral, each one placed the envelope on top of the man, then he was laid to rest.
On the way from the funeral, in the limo, the doctor confessed “I must tell you gentlemen, I only put $20,000 on top of Mr. Barricks, I wanted buy this new machine that would enable me to diagnose his rare disease and save others. It’s what he would have wanted.”
Then the preacher said: “I have to confess, I only put $10,000 on top of Mr. Barricks. We needed that money to help more homeless, and it’s what Mr. Barricks would’ve wanted”
The insurance agent was angry at both men and said: “I can’t believe both of you, stealing from a dead man. I wrote Mr. Barricks a check for the full $30,000!”
