Final wishes

Final wishes

Boudreaux is on his deathbed and knows the end is near. His nurse, wife, daughter and two sons were with him. He asks for two witnesses other than his family to be present, and a camcorder be in place to record his last wishes.

When all was ready he began to speak: My son, Tee-Boud, I want you to take the Mayfair houses. My daughter, Joleene, you take the apartments over in the east end. My son, Hebert, I want you to take the offices over in the City Center. Marie, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings on the banks of the river.

The nurse and witnesses were blown away as they did not realize his extensive holdings. As Boudreaux slipped away, the nurse said, "Mrs. Boudreaux, your husband must have been a hard-working man to have accumulated all this property".

Marie replied, "Property? That sorry son of a gun had a newspaper route!"
