At the golf course one Sunday, a golfer is about to putt, when a funeral procession turns the corner just off the course and begins to roll by. The golfer straightens up from his putter, takes his hat off, and holds it over his heart. He stands there silently like that, facing the procession until it passes. Then he bends over again and makes his putt.

"That was a very thoughtful gesture," a member of his foursome says to him as they walk towards the next tee.

"You are one compassionate guy."

"Thank you," replies the golfer. "We would have been married 25 years next Tuesday."
