Marriage

Friday, 6 May, 2011 - 12:18 pm

It's the yahtzeit of Herman Mendelbaum's death and his widow decides to make a pilgrimage to the cemetery to recite a prayer over his grave and place a small stone, as is the tradition, to show that the deceased is remembered.
She arrives at the cemetery, but it being a while since she had been there, she is confused and cannot find poor Herman's grave site.  Finally, she comes across a grounds-keeper who escorts her to a small chapel on the cemetary grounds where the records are kept.

Pouring over large maps and lists, he finally turns to the widow and says, "I can find no record of a Herman Mendelbaum buried here.  The closest I can find is a Sadie Mendelbaum."
"That's him!" she exclaims.  "He always put everything in my name."
