Why Did You Die?

A man placed some flowers on the grave of his departed mother and started back for his car, parked on the cemetery road. His attention was diverted to a man kneeling at a grave.

The man seemed to be praying with profound intensity, and kept repeating, “Why did you die? Why did you die?”

The first man approached him and said, “Sir, I don’t want to interfere with your private grief, but this demonstration of hurt and pain is more than I’ve ever seen before. For whom do you mourn so deeply? Is it your child? Is it a parent? Who, may I ask, lies in that grave?”

The mourner answered, “My wife’s first husband!… Why did you die? Why did you die?"
