A young man was paired with an older gentleman for their round of golf at the local golf course.

Over the course of the round the older gentleman and young man traded stories of past rounds, good shots and poor shots, and simply put, had a grand old time.

At the 14th, just as the older gentleman was lining up to tee off, he witnessed a funeral procession going past the golf course. Very quietly he stopped, hung his head and said a quiet prayer.

The young man stood astonished at what he had just witnessed and asked the old man, “That was the most beautiful thing I have ever witnessed, but may I ask just why you did what you did?”

After a moment of silence, the older gentleman replied, “Well we were married for 40 years you know.”
