The Deathbed Request

A preacher on his deathbed summoned his doctor and lawyer. The two came, and he asked them to sit on either side of his bed and hold his hands.

They sat for a long while until the doctor quietly said, ”You don’t have long on this earth, Reverend. Shouldn’t you tell us why you asked us to come.”

The old preacher wheezed and said ”Well, Jesus died between two thieves, and that’s the way I want to go too.”
