The things that an old man had to say while he was on his deathbed impressed his nurse, but the reality behind it was shocking.


People say all sorts of things on their deathbed. While some people take time to let their loved ones know how much they mean to them, others talk about things they could've done better or regret not doing.

An old man had some other things to sort out while he was at death's door. Gathered around him were his wife and their three kids along with a nurse, who stood nearby.

Surrounded by all the people who mattered to him, he began to speak. Addressing his eldest son, he said:

"Bill, you take the Beverly Hills houses."

The nurses' eyebrows went up as she closely listened to the dying old man.


Calling out his first daughter's name, the old man said:

"Mary, you take the offices in the Center Center."

The nurse was impressed by how much wealth the old man had accumulated throughout his life. When he called out his second daughter's name, she listened intently to find out what else he owned.

"Debra, the apartments over the L.A. Plaza are yours," he said.

Lastly, he looked at his wife, who looked down to the floor with a blank expression. Calling out his wife's name, the old man said:

"To my dear wife, take all the residential buildings near downtown."


By now, the nurse was thoroughly impressed with the old man. She went close to his wife and said, "Your husband must have been quite a man, amassing so much property to leave to all of you."
