money and place it in the casket ٢ with me. I wanna take my
money to the afterlife."

She had a shoe box with her, she came over with the box and
placed it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket

crazy enough to put all that money in the casket."
"Yes," the wife said, "I promised. I'm a good Christian, I can't lie.
I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket
"You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the
casket with him?"
"I sure did. I got it all together, put it
into my account and I wrote
him a check."
