An old, rich man told his wife that he only had one wish when he passed away, saying: “Honey, I want to be buried with all of my money in my casket.”
The wife agreed without a second thought. Months went by and the man sadly passed away.
At the funeral, his wife walked up to the casket with an envelope in her hand. Solemnly, she placed the envelope in the casket with her husband.
The priest stood nearby and asked the wife: “What’s in there dear?”
The wife replied: “My husband’s final wish was to be buried with all of his money. So I had to make sure it happened.”
The priest looked at the small envelope with confusion, adding: “But my dear, he was so rich. How did you fit it all in there?”
“Well,” the wife replied, “there was far too much of course, so I did the courtesy of transferring it all into my account and writing him a cheque.”
