Family Joke

A Patel family in Gujarat was puzzled when the coffin of their deadmother 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 Whenthey opened the lid , they found a letter on top addressed to herbrothersand sisters:

Dear Chandrakantbhai,Arvindbhai, Mohan and Varsha, I am sending Ba\'s body to you, since it washer wish that she should be cremated in the compound of our ancestral homein GUJARAT. Sorry, I could not come along as all of my paid leave isconsumed. You will find inside the coffin, under Ba\'s body, 12 cans of cheese, 10 packets of Toblerone chocolates and 8 packets ofBadam. Please divide these among all of you. On Ba\'s feet you will findanew pair of Reebok shoes (size 10) for Mohan. There are also 2 pairs of shoes for Radha\'s and Lakshmi\'s sons. Hope the sizes are correct. Ba iswearing 6 American T-Shirts. The large size is for Mohan. Justdistributethe rest among yourselves. The 2 new Jeans that Ba\'s is wearing are for the boys. The Swiss watch thatReema wanted is on Ba\'s left wrist. Shanta masi, Ba is wearing the necklace, earrings and ringthat you asked for. Please take them off her. The 6 white cotton socksthat Ba is wearing must be divided among my nephews. Please distribute allthese fairly.
