Madame Sinistre, Berno and Voltaire, relatives of the deceased, Anaira Jules, dance with her coffin behind a marching band, in Grand-Bera, Haiti, April 17, 2021. Jules' youngest daughter, Fredeline Alfred (not pictured) said the funeral alone cost her family the equivalent of $2,122, while the wake cost another $3,000 – a fortune in a country where two-thirds of the population make less than $2 per day. Alfred said she struggled to pay rent and feed her family after paying so much. But it was all worth it for her mother. "The last time she spoke to me," she said, "she held me in her arms, and told me she would never stop loving me." REUTERS/Valerie Baeriswyl SEARCH "HAITI FUNERALS" FOR THIS STORY.
