An old man was on his deathbed and wanted to be buried with his money.

He called his priest, his doctor and his lawyer to his bedside.

“Here’s $30,000 in cash to be held by each of you. I trust you to put this in my coffin when I die so I can take all my money with me.” he said.

At the funeral, each man put an envelope in the coffin. Riding away in a limousine, the priest suddenly broke into tears and confessed: “I only put $20,000 into the envelope because I needed $10,000 to repair the roof of the church.”

“Well, since we’re confiding in each other,” said the doctor, “I only put $10,000 in the envelope because we needed a new X-ray machine for the pediatrics ward at the hospital which cost $20,000.”

“I’m ashamed of both of you,” the lawyer exclaimed. “I want it known that when I put my envelope in that coffin, I enclosed a check for the full $30,000.”
