Death on Vacation…what to do???

During their vacation and while they were visiting Jerusalam, George’s mother-in-law died.

With death certificates in hand, George went to the American Consulate Office to make arrangements to send the body back to the states for proper burial.

The Consul, after hearing of the death of the mother-in-law told George that the sending of a body back to the states for burial is very, very expensive. It could cost as much as $5,000.00.

The Consul continues, in most cases the person responsible for the remains normally decides to bury the body here. This would only cost $150.00.

George thinks for some time and answers, “I don’t care how much it will cost to send the body back; that’s what I want to do.”

The Consul, after hearing this, says, “You must have loved your mother-in-law very much consdering the difference in price.”

“No, it’s not that,” says George. “You see, I know of a case from many years ago of a person that was buried here in Jerusalem. On the third day he rose from the dead! I just can’t take that chance.”
