There was a man who had worked all his life and saved much money, but he was a real miser. Just before he died he asked his wife to put all his money in the casket with him when he was buried. Being the good wife that she was, she promised to do so.
After his funeral was over, just before the casket was sealed his wife put a white envelope into the casket and turned away.
A close friend who had been present when the husband made his selfish request asked the wife if she thought she should reconsider her actions. The wife responded, “I cannot break my word. I wrote him a check.”
