Two 95 year old men, Lawrence and Ray are lifelong friends. When it is clear that Ray is close to the end, Lawrence visits him every day.
One day Lawrence says “Ray, we both loved golf our whole lives, and we play golf together, and did for so many years. Do me a favour, when you get to Heaven, somehow you must let me know if there is golf up there.”
Ray looked up at his friend, “Big Guy, you have been my best friend for many years, if it is possible; I’ll do that favour for you.” Shortly after he passes away.
Several months later, Lawrence is awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to him, “Lawrence… Lawrence…Hey, Big Guy!” Lawrence sits up suddenly, “Who is that?”
“It’s me, Ray. I am in heaven and I promised you I would get back to you if I could. I have a little bad news but also some really good news.”
“Start with the good news.” Replied Lawrence.
“The good news is that there is golf in Heaven. In fact, it is sunny every day, but not hot, the greens are perfect, the view is majestic and the beer cart is always full. Better than that, we are all young again and in our prime, we can play all we want and never get tired and all of our friends are here that left before us!”
“Wow! That sounds amazing! Beyond my wildest dreams, what is the bad news?”
“You have an early T-off time this Saturday.”
