When a mother would pass away Рshe often left behind many young children Рtoo many for the new widower to take care of.  Sometimes these children would be divvied up amongst various extended family members such as Aunts and Uncles, to raise.  Also the tradition of closing a grave by hand (shovels) is still done today Рpart of the grieving process.
