There once was this deacon and this preacher, and they had been real good
friends for a long time. Well one day the deacon got sick and was put in the
hospital, so the preacher decided to go and see his old friend. When he walked
into the hospital room, the preacher noticed all the hoses and stuff they had
going into the deacon. The preacher walked over and kneeled by the bed and
asked, ''How ya doing?'' The deacon motioned at a pad and pen on the nightstand.
''You want that?'' the preacher asked him, and the deacon nodded his head yes.
So the preacher handed his friend the pad and pen and the deacon began to write.
All of a sudden the deacon died. At his funeral, the preacher was asked to
deliver the service. ''He was a good man and I'll never forget him,'' the
preacher said, ''I was with him when he died and as a matter of fact I have his
last thought in my coat pocket here.'' The preacher reaches into his pocket and
pulls out the paper. ''Please, get up! You're kneeling on my oxygen hose!''
