This is what happens to vendidos. I wonder if they cashed the insurance check. I hope they donated it to a worthy non profit like Dame La Mano or la fe something noble like that with honor.

You take the cake and steal it out of the mouths of babies and the poor. Her family is suffering her loss of her son more than you know.

Why does she just dream of her son's return then and not make it happen? People nowadays are weak and cowardly and they need to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps, or in your case, by your own jockstrap.

I wonder if your mother would grieve for you. Clearly the lady has issues. Her grief is not beyond the denial stage and may never get there until she gets real help. Her family is not helping her. I have seen this before and it is not a pretty sight. It is even worse when you are on the Honor Guard, remove the flag from the coffin and fold it up and turn and present it to the mother or wife or relative and they don't want the flag or throw it on the ground. I been there and done that and only in one occasion had I ever have to take the flag to the reserve station where it was kept.
