A greedy man who never wanted to let go of his money asked his wife to grant him a surprising last wish after his death.

Realizing that he might die soon, a rich man who had worked hard all his life asked his wife for one last favor.

The man worked hard and made sure to save everything that he made, and he never gave anything away when it came to his fortune. So 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 money to the afterlife with me."

His wife did not protest, and he made her swear with all her heart and her life that when he died, she would not forget to put all his money in his coffin.

Sometime after, the man died. As he lay in his coffin at his funeral, ready to be laid to rest, his mourning wife sat by, dressed in black with her friend by her side.

The ceremony began, and after the service ended, it was time to bury him. Just before the undertakers started to close the coffin, the man's wife exclaimed that they had to hold on.

While everybody looked at her in confusion, the man's wife took with her a small metal box and walked to her dead husband's coffin, dropped the box in the casket, and the burial continued.

Astonished, her friend asked her if she had been stupid enough to put all the money in the dead man's coffin. The loyal wife replied that she was a Christian and had to do as she had promised her husband.

She had simply put all the man's money in her account, wrote him a check. If he could cash the check, then he could spend it all!
