Man Leaves Fortune To People Who Attended His Funeral

People like this make me smile...they have a special sense of humor, even, when they're not here any longer...

Dennis Valstad passed away a few months ago in Ripon, Wisconsin and since he had no wife or kids, he didn’t expect much of a turnout at his funeral. Anyone who attended the funeral for the local dry cleaner was probably surprised to get a letter from his attorney, but what was inside was even more of a shock.

Valstad seemed to be a man of modest means, but over his 69 years, he amassed a small fortune and with no family to leave it to, he left unique instructions for handling his estate. His will explains that his $500,000 was to be divided equally among the people who went to his funeral. There were 275 of them and now they’re all getting about $1,800 from Valstad’s half-million dollar estate just for coming to pay their respects.
