Dave Smith is on his death bed and knows the end is near his nurse, his wife, his daughter and 2 sons are with him at his home in London.
He asks for 2 independent witnesses to be present and a camcorder to be in place to record his last wishes.
When all is ready he begins to speak:
“My son, Bernie, I want you to take the Mayfair houses.”
“My daughter, Sybil, you take the apartments over in the East end.”
“My son, Jamie, I want you to take the offices over in the City.”
“Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings on the banks of the Thames.”
The nurse and witnesses are blown away they did not realize the extent of his holdings.
As Dave slips away, the nurse says to his wife, “Mrs. Smith, my deepest condolences your husband must have been such a hard-working and wonderful man to have accumulated all this property.”
“Property?” she replies no he had a window cleaning round.
