A stingy old lawyer who had 

A stingy old lawyer who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness was determined to prove the saying about money,

“you can’t take it with you”, wrong:

After much thought and consideration, the man 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 pillowcases.

Then, he directed her to take the bags of money to the attic and leave them directly above his bed.

His plan was to reach out and grab the bags when he was ascending to heaven.

Several weeks after the funeral, the deceased lawyer’s wife was up in the attic cleaning and came upon the two pillowcases stuffed with cash.

“Oh, that darned old fool,” she exclaimed.

“I knew he should have had me put the money in the basement.”
