A lawyer, a preacher, and a doctor had a common, very rich friend that was dying. He called them all together one day and said, "I know they say you can't take it with you but, I'm gonna try. I'm going to give each of you a third of my money and just before they cover me, I want each of you to throw the money in."
The service came and afterwards the three friends met at a coffee shop. Shortly the preacher said, "I can't stand this any longer - I kept part of the money. I know he's dead and he'll never need it and my church is in a building program so I used the money for that."
The doctor hung his head and said, "I'm glad you said that, I kept some too. I'm having to move my office and I used the money for that."
The lawyer looked up and said, "I'm ashamed of both of you! I threw in a check for the whole amount."

Now I heard it a little different.
The old man's last wish was that each of his three sons put in $10K, so at the the funeral the first son (a doctor) walks by and puts an envelope containing the amount into the casket, the next son (an attorney) follows behind him and does the same. Finally the third son (an engineer) goes up to the casket writes a check for $30K and takes the two envelopes in change.
