A wife had a clever idea after her late husband made her promise to bury him with all his money. This woman’s husband worked hard for his money but he was a little too much of a cheapskate and believed that his money only belonged to him.
He loved his money even more than he loved his wife. So when he was about to die he made his wife promise to bury him with all his money. Thankfully, his wife was quite smart and at his funeral she came up with an idea that made sure she kept her integrity while granting his wish. Here is the story:
“There was a man who had worked all of his life and has saved all of his money. He was a real cheapskate when it came to his money. He loved money more than just about anything, and 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. Because I want to take all my money to the after life.’
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. When one day he died.”
He was stretched out in the casket, the wife was sitting there in black next to their best friend. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, ‘Wait 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 and rolled it away.”
‘I hope you weren’t crazy enough to put all that money in there with that stingy old man.’ Her friend said.
She said, ‘Yes, I promised. I’m a good Christian, I can’t lie. I promised him that I was 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?’her friend asked shocked.
‘I sure did. I got it all together, put it into my account and I wrote him a check.’ said the wife.”
