What Should People Say At Your Funeral

In real life I once had the what do you want people to say at your funeral conversation with somebody and gave the third guy’s answer. It wasn’t until later that I heard this joke for the first time. Should I be asking about royalty cheques?

Three friends die in a car crash and they find themselves at the Gates of Heaven. Before entering, they are each asked a question by St. Peter himself.

“When you are in your casket and friends and family are mourning upon you, what would you like to hear them say about you before they lower you into your grave?”
The first guy says, “I would like to hear them say that I was a great doctor and a wonderful family man.”
The second guy says, “I would like to hear that I was a wonderful husband and school teacher who made a huge difference in our children.”
They all turn to the third guy, who looks like he’s deeply pondering.

“Well,” they ask?

After a few more seconds, he finally starts to speak.

“I would like to hear…”Wait! He’s moving!”
