Dogs don't usually gather at the funeral home in Cuernavaca Morelos, Mexico, which is why their presence was so surprising at a ceremony for Margarita Suárez earlier this month.

Suárez spent her life feeding stray animals like dogs and cats in her hometown of Merida Yucatan. After she died, her family held her funeral in a town more than 830 miles away. There, her family was joined by a pack of stray dogs.

Her daughter Patricia Urrutia shared photos of the dogs on her Facebook page, along with a description of what happened. Per a Huffington Post translation:

[M]y mother was a lover of animals, she couldn't bump into one and not give it a little bit of food, sometimes even before [f

DUSSELFORF, Germany - There are circulating reports that a passenger on the fateful flight may have used a cell phone to record video of the nightmarish final seconds of Germanwings Flight 9525.

French magazine Paris Match and German newspaper Bild reported that a video recovered from a phone at the wreckage site showed the inside of the plane moments before it crashed.

"One can hear cries of 'My God' in several languages," Paris Match reported. "Metallic banging can also be heard more than three times, perhaps of the pilot trying to open the cockpit door with a heavy object. Towards the end, after a heavy shake, stronger than the others, the screaming intensifies. Then nothing."

SAN FRANCISCO — Attorneys for Robin Williams' wife and children are headed to court in their battle over the late comedian's estate.

The lawyers are scheduled to appear before a San Francisco probate judge on Monday, as they argue over who should get clothes and other personal items the actor kept at one his Northern California homes.

In papers filed in December, Williams' wife, Susan, says some of the late actor's personal items were taken without her permission.

She has asked the court to exclude the contents of the San Francisco Bay area home she shared with Williams from the jewelry, memorabilia and other items Williams said the children should have.

Police in Glades County, Florida, have few clues as to what actually happened. Early Monday a van with 18 people inside ran a stop sign, crossed a four-lane highway and plunged into a shallow water-filled ditch. Eight people died. Ten others, including a 4-year-old child, were injured, according to police.

Investigators don't know why it happened, Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Greg Bueno said. The driver died, and police haven't been able to interview passengers yet.

"Our hearts go out to the families of the victims," Bueno said. "It breaks your heart to see something like this happen."

Some relatives of the crash victims, all of whom were from the Independent Haitian Assembl

Legendary North Carolina Coach Dean Smith, who took his college basketball team to two NCAA championships, always coaxed the best out of his players. Now, a month after his death, he has issued one final ‘thank you’ to every full-time player who ever hit the court for him.

Trustees of Smith’s estate mailed out $200 checks to 180 players with an accompanying letter that read, “enjoy a dinner out compliments of Coach Dean Smith.”

Player Brad Daugherty said on ESPN that he would ignore the coach’s orders to spend the money on dinner out: “Nope, I’m going to get it matted and framed, and stick it on my wall so I can look at it every day.”

Jeff Wilson wanted to die.

For, at least, several days after he hit a fellow student with his car in high school, the California teen was devastated to his core.

Tammie Baird, a freshman, was not badly hurt, having only chipped an ankle bone. But in a surprising twist of fate, the shocking moment when Tammie flew over Wilson’s car, placed her on a unique career path no one could have foreseen.

20-something years later, out of the blue, she wrote an email to Jeff telling him her good news:

“You may have been the first person to hit me with your car, but you weren’t the last,” she began.

“I became a stunt woman, and now, what I’m known for in my industry is car hits.”

“I ju

One policeman made a pretty unlikely pal while on the job.

Deputy Mark Elsaid of the Lee County Sheriff's Office in Florida was on patrol earlier this week when he spotted a pit bull not on a leash, Tiffany Wood, one of the office's public information officers, told The Huffington Post. Neighbors told Elsaid that they were concerned that the dog might possibly harm local children. Elsaid then approached the animal and quickly realized that the pooch was just after some TLC.

"[The pup] didn't want to terrorize the neighborhood, he just got out of his gate, and just wanted to go and be friends with everybody," Wood told HuffPost.

The policeman ended up returning the dog, whose nam

It's MASS MURDER, nothing less, say most officials. Andreas Lubitz, the Germanwings co-pilot who authorities say deliberately crashed a plane with 150 people on board in the French Alps Tuesday, was "rather quiet" and showed no overt signs of his intentions, people who knew him said Thursday.

There were screams as passengers realized in the final seconds that the co-pilot was deliberately flying them into the mountains after locking the captain out of the cockpit.

Germany's top security official said the 28-year-old German citizen wasn't known to authorities, and there are "no indications of any kind of terrorist background."

Quincy Kroner had that exact feeling on March 13 when he met his local heroes -- the neighborhood garbage men, Mark Davis and Eddie Washington. The Cincinnati 2-year-old has been fascinated by the garbage truck “since about the age he could walk,” the toddler’s father, Ollie Kroner, told The Huffington Post in an email. But this was the first time he met the garbage men in person, and it was all too much for him -- resulting in the adorably priceless photo above.
