An old woman was on her deathbed. The minister came to visit her and asked, “Do you have any last wishes?”
“Yes,” she said. “I want to be cremated. And then, I want my ashes spread all over the mall.”
“Why would you want me to do that?” the minister asked.
“Because,” she replied, “it’s the only way my daughters will come and visit me once a week.”
