Sympathy & Prayers to the families of Johnson & Patricia Berg. May they rest in peace. +
An enthusiastic golfer died and went to hell. Accustomed to playing in the withering heat of Arizona, he asked the devil if he had golf courses.
“Certainly,” replied the devil. “We have courses with grass greens and watered fairways.”
“That’s great!” exclaimed the golfer. “Now where are the balls and clubs?”
“We don’t have any,” said the devil. “That’s the hell of it.”
