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 just about anything, and just before he died, he said to
"Now listen, when I die, I want you to take all my money and place
it in thecasket with me. I wanna take my money to the afterlife." So
he got his wife to promise him with all her heart that when he died, she
would put all the money in the casket with him.
Well, one day he died. He was stretched ! out in the casket,
the wife was sitting there in black next to her closest friend. When they
finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the
casket, the wife said "Wait just a minute!"
She had a shoe box with her, she came over with 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'm a good Christian, I
I promised him that I was going to put that money in that
"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."
