A man leaving a convenience store with his morning coffee noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery.
A black hearse was followed by a second black hearse about 20 Feet behind the first one.
Behind the second hearse was a solitary man walking a dog on a leash.
Behind him a short distance, were about 200 men walking in single file.
The man couldn’t stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached the man walking the dog and said:
“I am so sorry for your loss, and this may be a bad time to disturb you, but I’ve never seen a funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?”
”What happened to her?”
“She yelled at me and my dog attacked and killed her.”He inquired further, “But who is in the second hearse?”
The man answered, “My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my wife when the dog turned on her as well.”
A very poignant and touching moment of brotherhood and silence passed between the two men.
“Can I borrow the dog?”
The man replied, “You will have to get in line.”
