The last thing Jenni Rivera's family ever thought they be doing this week was preparing for her final journey. The Mexican-American singer will be honored with a public funeral service and tribute, probably as early as Tuesday.
The "Diva of Banda" and mother of five, and head of a growing international brand empire, died December 9th when the Learjet she had rented crashed near Iturbide, Mexico. Six others, including the two pilots on board were also killed.
Jenni's brothers escorted her remains back from Mexico last Thursday night. Lupillo Rivera tweeted on Friday, "Jenni mission accomplished, you're home." Her brother Juan Rivera said to the Spanish media, "Soon we will have a ceremony in which fans can say goodbye to my sister."
