When old Abraham died, his will provided $50,000 to pay for an elaborate funeral.

After the burial, as the last of the guests departed, his wife, Sarah, turned to her oldest friend, Naomi.

“Well, I’m sure Abraham would be pleased”, she said.

“I’m sure you’re right”, Naomi replied.

She then lowered her voice and leaned in close to Sarah and asked, “How much did this really cost?”

“All of it?” said Sarah. “Fifty thousand”.

“No!” Naomi exclaimed. “I mean, it was very nice, but $50,000? Are you serious?”

Sarah answered, “The funeral was $6,500. I donated $500 to the shul. The shiva food and drinks were another $500. The rest went to pay for the memorial stone”.

Naomi did a quick calculation in her head. “So $42,500 for a memorial stone? Oy VEH, how big is it?”

Sarah replied, “Two and a half carats”.
