One last request...

There was a man who had worked all of his life, had saved all of his money.

Just before he died, he asked 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 afterlife 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.

One day he died and was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there in black, and her friend was sitting next to her. When the ceremony was over the undertakers got ready to close the casket. The wife said, "Wait just a minute!" I have something to put it in the casket. The undertakers locked the casket down, and rolled it away.

Her friend said, "Judy, You didn’t put all that money in there with your husband."
The loyal wife replied," Listen, I'm a Christian and I can't go back on my word.
I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him.
You mean to tell me you did put that money in the casket with him!
"I sure did," said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account and wrote him a check.”
If he can cash it, he can spend it.
