Decisions made

This is such a sad story but I just was wondering - why are they shipping his body back to Mexico when they cannot afford it? Is his widow and family staying here in the U.S. or are they going back home to Mexico in the near future? If she plans to stay here to make a future for her and the children,, it would seem to me that she would want him buried here. Is it a tradition that he has to be buried in Mexico even if there is no financial ability to do so? My heart goes out to her and the children. This is not an easy time for any of them, and the financial aspect makes it that muc more difficult. And before anyone says that I don't know what I am talking about - yes, I do! I just lost my mom a month ago so I know what the emotional, physical, and financial ramifications are. Thank God, my dad and mom had planned ahead but they also knew what they could afford, and planned accordingly. Unfortunately, because this happened so suddenly and unexpectedly, this lady didn't have that chance but surely someone was there to give her some financial advice and help with the decisions. I believe in helping when I am able, but unfortunately, we can't often expect others to help when our decisions are not made wisely.
