Father O'Grady was saying his goodbye's to the parishioners after his Sunday morning service as he always does when Mary Clancey came up to him in tears.

"Well, my husband, Father... he passed away last night."

"Oh, Mary," said the priest, "that's terrible. Tell me Mary, did he have any last requests?"

"Well, yes he did, Father, just one." replied Mary.

"What did he ask, Mary?"
