There was a man who had worked all of his life and had saved all of his money. He was a real miser when it came to his money. He loved money more than anything.
Just before he died, he said to his wife,
"Now listen, when I die, I want you to take all my money and place it in the casket with me. You've got to promise me cause I wanna take my money to the afterlife."
So she promised, him with all her heart, that when he died she would put all the money in the casket with him.
Well, the day came and he died. He was in the casket, and she was sitting there in black next to her closest friend.
Just as they finished the ceremony, as the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said,
"Wait just a minute!"
She had a shoe box with her, she took the box and placed it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down and rolled it away.
Her friend said, "I hope you weren't crazy enough to put all that money in the casket."
She said, "Yes, I promised. I can't lie, and I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him."
"You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket with him?"
"I sure did," said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account and I wrote him a check."
