A stingy old lawyer who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness
was determined to prove wrong the saying, "You can't take it with
you." After much thought and consideration, the old ambulance-
chaser finally figured out how to take at least some of his money
with him when he died. He instructed his wife to go to the bank and
withdraw enough money to fill two pillow cases. He then directed
her to take the bags of money to the attic and leave them directly
above his bed. His plan: When he passed away, he would reach out
and grab the bags on his way to heaven. Several weeks after his
funeral, the lawyer's widow, up in the attic cleaning, came upon the
two forgotten pillow cases stuffed with cash. "Oh, that darned old
fool," she exclaimed. "I knew he should have had me put the money
in the basement."

That reminds me of the rich man who called his lawyer, doctor and preacher to his bedside. He hande them each an envelop with a hundred thousand dollars each and instructed to throw them in his coffin at his funeral so he could prove "you can take it with you". At the services when it came time they each put an envelope in the coffin. They were riding back together when the Lawyer said I feal bad because I took out a twenty percent fee. The doctor said I must confess I took out quit a bit of money to pay his medical expenses. The preacher was shocked that they would do that. Aw come on they said you at least took out his tithe. The preacher said no I did not, I put his money in the bank and wrote him out a check for the full amount this morning.
