A married couple were in their 90’s and had been married for 70 years, but they still had excellent health, because the wife always insisted that they both eat right and exercise. Unfortunately, as they drove to the beach on vacation, they were in a terrible auto accident and they both died.
When they arrived in heaven they were greeted by St. Peter who said, “Welcome to heaven! Right this way! The feast is about to begin!”

Bob and Earl were two of the biggest baseball fans ever. They had season tickets together for fifty years and they spent most of the day discussing baseball, even in winter. They even agreed that whoever died first would somehow come back and let the other know if there was baseball in heaven. One night after a ball game, Bob died peacefully in his sleep. A few nights later Earl was awakened to the sound of Bob’s voice calling out to him from the beyond. Earl had to know right away and so he quickly asked Bob, “Is there baseball in heaven?”
