There was and old married couple many years ago that lived out in the country on a farm. One snowy February day the old fellow found his wife had passed away in the night. In those days, people took care of their own arrangements and burials, so he sent the message out to all his old buddies.
The family plot was way up this steep hill, and they would have to carry the coffin to the top.
Well, these fellows were old timers and could barely carry it. They got half way up and dropped the coffin, and the wife spilled out into a snow bank. It turned out she wasn’t really dead, and the cold shock woke her up.
The old couple lived happily for another five years until one day, the man found his wife had passed in her sleep. Once again he called his old buddies, and once again they were going to have to carry her up the same snow covered hill.
Right as they started to lift the coffin, the old fellow said … “For God’s sake, be careful this time!”
