Italian Wife ?

There was an Italian immigrant man who had worked all his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real "miser" when it came to his money.

Just before he died, he said to his Italian 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 after life with me."

And so
  he got his wife to promise him, with all of her heart, that when he died, she would put all of the money into the casket with him.

Well, he died. He was stretched out in the
 casket, his wife was sitting there - dressed in black, (what else), and her best friend was sitting next to her.

 they finished the ceremony, and just before the undertaker got ready to close the casket, the wife said, "Wait  just a moment!"
She had a  small metal box with her; she came overwith the box and put it in the casket.

Then the undertaker
 locked the casket down and they rolled it away. So her friend said, "Girl, I  know you were not fool enough to put all that money in there with your husband."
The loyal wife replied, "Listen, I'm an Italian Catholic & I cannot go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money in the casket with him.."

You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him??"

"I sure did," said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account, I wrote him a check.... If he can cash it, then he can spend it." AMEN!
