There was a man who had worked all of his life, had saved every penny and was a real miser when it came to his money. He loved his money more than anything, and just before he died, he said to his wife, "When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the after life with me."

He got his wife to promise him with all of her heart that when he died, she would put all of the money in the casket with him.

At his funeral, his wife sat and watched the ceremony with her best friend sitting next to her. As the undertakers were getting ready to close the casket, she said, "Wait just a minute!'

She had a box with her, which she put into the casket. The undertakers locked the casket down, and rolled it away.

Her friend turned to her and said, "Don't tell me you were crazy enough to put all that money in there with your husband!"

She replied, "I can't go back on my word. I promised my husband that I was going to put that money in that casket with him, just like he asked. I wrote him a cheque!"
