A man is visiting the cemetery to place flowers on the grave of his dearly departed mother. He places the flowers on the grave and is walking back towards his car when he notices another man kneeling at a grave. The man seemed to be praying with profound intensity and repeating, “Why did you have to die? Why did you have to die?”
The first man was touched and decided to approach him. “Sir, I don’t wish to interfere with your private grief, but this demonstration of pain is more than I’ve ever encountered before. For whom do you mourn so deeply? A child? A parent?”
The mourner took a moment to collect himself and then replied, “My wife’s first husband.”
An artist asked the gallery owner if there had been any interest in his paintings currently on display.
“I’ve got good news and bad news,” the owner replied. “The good news is that a gentleman inquired about your work and wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. When I told him it would, he bought all fifteen of your paintings.”
“That’s wonderful!” the artist exclaimed, “What’s the bad news?”.
With concern, the gallery owner replied, “The guy was your doctor.”
