A man placed some flowers on the grave of his
dearly departed mother and started back toward
his car when his attention was diverted to another
man kneeling at a grave.
The man seemed to be praying with profound
intensity and kept repeating, "Why did you have to
die? Why did you have to die?" The first man
approached him and said, "Sir, I don't wish to
interfere with your private grief, but this
demonstration of pain is more than I've ever seen
For whom do you mourn so deeply? A child? A
parent?" The mourner took a moment to collect
himself, then replied, "My wife's first husband."
