Two Thieves

The old preacher was dying at home in his bed. He realized his time was short, so he sent for his doctor and his lawyer to come to his home. When they arrived, they were ushered up to his bedroom.

As they entered the room, the preacher held out his hands and motioned for them to sit on each side of the bed. For the longest time, no one said a word. Finally, the doctor spoke up and said, "Preacher, you're not long for this old world, you'd better tell us why you asked us to come."

The old preacher mustered up all his strength and in a strained voice said, "Well, Jesus died between two thieves...and that's how I wanted to die."
