There was an extremely wealthy man who did nothing but work all of his life, saved all of his money, never spent a dime on anyone else and was a real miser when it came to his money.
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 all my money to the afterlife with me."
In spite of his cheapness, his wife loved him dearly and so she promised him with all of her heart that when he died, she would bury him with his wealth in the casket with him.
Finally, he died.
At the services he was stretched out in the casket, his wife sitting there in black, with her friend was sitting next to her.
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 box with her,she came over with the box and put it in the casket.
Then the undertakers locked the casket down, and they rolled it away.
Surprised, her friend turned to her in shock and said, "Girl, I hope you weren't fool enough to put all that money in there with your husband!"
The woman said, "Listen, I can't go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put his money in that casket with him and I did"
"You mean to tell me you actually put all that money in the casket with him?"
"I sure did," said the wife...
"I wrote him a check!"
