Alfred had worked all of his life and has saved all of his money.
Alfred was a real stingy man when it’s about his money. He loved money more than everything and just before he died, he said to his wife Mary:
“Listen to me Mary,when I die I want you to take all my money and place it in the coffin with me.Because I want to keep all my money to the after from this life.”
So he got Mary to promise him with all her heart that when he died she would put all the money in the coffin with him.One day Alfred died.
He was stretched out in the coffin,Mary was sitting there in black suit with sunglasses next to their best friend Arthur. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the coffin,Mary said, “Wait a minute!”
She had a box with her, she came over with the box and placed it in the coffin.Then the undertakers locked the coffin and rolled it away.
Arthur said:”I hope you weren’t crazy enough to put all that money in there with that stingy old man.”
Mary replied: “Yes, I promised to Alfred. I’m a good Christian, I can’t lie. I promised him that I will put that money in that coffin with him.”
“You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the coffin with him?”
“Yes I did”replied the wife.
“I got it all together, put it into my bank account and I wrote him a check.”
