TAKING IT WITH YOU

A billionaire wanted to test the saying: "You can't take it with you. " He called his three closest friends to help with an experiment: his doctor, his minister and his lawyer. To each he gave a million dollars cash with the instruction that they should each put the money with him *in his coffin when he died. After his funeral the three were talking. The doctor said, "I have a confession. I didn't put the money in the coffin. There were just too many good things to do with it. We opened a free clinic for indigent people. " The minister said, "I'm glad you came clean. I didn't put the money in with him either. We have opened a service center for the poor and needy with that money. 1. "I'm surprised and ashamed of you both!" said the lawyer. "I'll have you know I put my own personal check for one million dollars right into that coffin with him.
