My family paid $7K for my uncle’s funeral. Our cousins said they didn’t have any money, but one remodeled his kitchen and another bought $800 shoes. Would you ask for it back?


Dear Moneyist,

My two sisters and I recently paid over $7,000 for the funeral of our uncle, because he had no insurance and his three children claimed they had no money to do so.
