Mom Told Me a New Story

I called mom tonight to see if she got the box of books I'd mailed to her.  As we were talking, I asked her how various family members died, and she responded with a story I'd never heard before.

When her father died, she said he was sitting in a chair and just went to sleep.  Across the room sat her elderly grandmother, who was by then almost completely blind from cataracts (long, long before that was a solvable condition...) " Little" grandmother was also asleep.

When the undertaker arrived and was shown into the room, he said, "Which one is it?"
