A Father’s Last Will

Doug Smithberger is on his deathbed at Allegheny General Hospital and knows the end is near.  

His nurse, his wife, his daughter and 2 sons are with him.

He asks for 2 witnesses to be present and a camcorder be in place to record his last wishes, and when all is ready he begins to speak:

My son, “Bernie, I want you to take all the West End houses.””

My daughter “Sybil, you take the apartments over in the Bottoms and up toward Neville Island.”

My son, “Jamie, I want you to take the offices and apartments over in Neville Island and Coraopilis.”

“Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings on the banks of the river between McKees Rocks and Coraopolis and up the valley toward the airport.”

The nurse and witnesses are blown away as they did not realize his extensive holdings, and as Doug slips away, the nurse says,

“Mrs. Smith, your husband must have been such a hard-working man to have accumulated all this property”.

Sarah replies, “Property ? …. the moron had a paper route!”

I hope this brought a smile to your face!! Have a fantastic, uplifting day!
