He wanted his wife to bury him with all his money and she did this instead
Many people believe in being good to everyone around because it will give them a positive feeling and also because most of them wish to leave a positive legacy being them. But then, everybody doesn’t believe so and live their lives in the manner that suits them best. So much so, that their ways of living become a vicious cycle of endless greed which doesn’t end with their death even.
1 This man wanted all his money in his casket
Let me tell you an interesting story of this kind of endless greed. This is the story of a widow who granted the last wish of her dying husband in the most genius way possible. Her husband was the kind of a man who worked hard all his life and kept saving money to take it all with him after being dead. Yes, you got that right he was guided by this kind of moral compass that he should have all his hard earned money forever by his side. He actually was a real cheapskate and loved his money more than anything. So just before he died, he said to his wife, ‘Now listen, I want you to collect my money and put it in my casket after my death. I want to take all my money to the afterlife.’ And he wanted his wife to be morally correct and grant him his last wish. The husband made his wife promise it with all her heart that she would grant that dying wish.
2 A Promise that she fulfilled
So the wife came up with a plan which was nothing short of a genius idea, something which kept her integrity while granting the wish of her late husband.
When he died, the wife gave him all the money. Yes she did, just when the undertakers were about to close the casket with her husband’s body, she stopped them and asked them to wait for just a minute. Upon returning, she placed a shoebox to be resting in peace with her husband. The undertakers took the casket away for the funeral.
3 A Genius Plan
Her friend who had seen it all, asked her whether she was really crazy enough to have given all the money to the stingy old man, who never cared for her as much as he cared for his money. The wife replied that she had indeed given the money to her husband as she wouldn’t lie being a true Christian at heart. She told her that she actually put all the money in her account and wrote her a husband a cheque.
Now that’s a smart wife, one who did not break a promise she made to her husband and gave him the amount he wanted and also kept the money to herself.
