One beautiful Saturday morning, as their usual foursome rounded onto the 16th green, a funeral procession quietly passed by.
John, an avid hacker, was putting when he suddenly stopped. He stood somewhat "at attention", took off his hat,and held it on his heart.
The other three golfers were awed by John's display of thoughtfulness.
When the funeral procession completely passed, they said, "Wow John, we didn't know you were such a compassionate person."
To which he replied:
"You know guys, after 34 years of marriage, that's the least I could do".
