A family was puzzled when the coffin of their dead mother (Ammachi) arrived from the US . It was sent by one of the daughters.
The dead body was very tightly squeezed inside the coffin, with no space left in it when they opened the lid;
they found a letter on top addressed to her brothers and sisters:
Dear Kunjumon, George kutty , Alice and Kunjumol
I am sending Ammachi’s body to you, since it was her wish that
she should be cremated in the compound of our ancestral home
Sorry, I could not come along as all of my paid leave is consumed.
You will find inside the coffin, under Ammachi’s body, cans of cheese, 10 packets of Toblerone chocolates and 8 packets of Badam (peanuts) please divide these among all of you.
On Ammachi’s feet you will find a new pair of Reebok shoes (size 10) for Georgekutty. There are also 2 pairs of shoes for Anumol’s and Alice’s sons. Hope the sizes are correct.
Ammachi is wearing 6 American T-Shirts. The large size is for Kunjumon. Just distribute the rest among yourselves.
The 2 new Jeans that Ammachi is wearing are for the boys.
The Swiss watch that Rima wanted is on Ammachi’s left wrist. Shanta Ammamma, Ammachi is wearing the necklace,earrings and ring that you asked for. Please take them off her..
The 6 white cotton socks that Ammachi is wearing must be divided among my nephews.Please distribute all these fairly.
PS : If anything more required let me know as soon as possible. Appachen is also not feeling too well nowadays…
