A man and his wife who had been married for 45 years went on VACATION to Jerusalem. While they were there, the HUSBAND suddenly passed away with a HEART ATTACK. The FUNERAL DIRECTOR told the wife, “You can have your husband shipped HOME for $5,000, or you can BURY him here, in the Holy Land, for $150.” The woman thought about it and told him she would just have him SHIPPED home.

The funeral director asked, “Why would you spend $5,000 to ship your husband HOME, when it would be wonderful to be BURIED here in the Holy Land and you would spend only $150?”

The woman replied, “Long ago a man DIED here, was BURIED here, and three days later He ROSE from the dead. . . . I JUST CAN’T TAKE THAT CHANCE.”
