UK couple die within hours of each other in Australia

 

Thousands of pounds has been raised to help the families of a British couple who died within hours of each other in Australia.

 

Former Market Drayton Town footballer Jason Francis, 29, was hit by a car near the home he shared with partner Alice Robinson in Scarborough, Perth.

 

Ms Robinson, who was said to have been "heartbroken", was later found dead. More than 32,000 Australian dollars (£17,938) has been donated since Christmas Eve.

Very sad indeed.... but a gofundme account to send the bodies home? Two urns of ash’s in carry on would be cheaper and easier.

 

if the families need the bodies that much, they should fund it themselves

Same thing did happen here in Belgium on december 20.

 

A couple ( both 89y) who already stayed in a old converted  hospital got very sick during the last months.

 

They were so weak they didn't even know how bad the other was so none of them had extra grieving to bare when they passed away in about the same minute having the whole family around them saying good bye. 

 

Weird thing is also that the couple died in the same room where she did gave birth to 7 of their 8 children over 60y ago.

tragic, but i agree if they had chosen to live in Australia then why a gofundme to return the bodies to a country they had left behind, let them stay in Aus. or return the ashes to UK
