Help Lay My Father To Rest

On June 8 ,2017 at 4:45 AM I was driving to work when I received a phone call from my fathers ex wife who I am still very close to. Instantly I knew it wasn't going to be good. I answered the phone and said please tell me he is just in the hospital. On the other end I heard a sob and "no". Next came the worst news. My father was shot in the head and killed.. I read the news article and it said my father was found handcuffed, facing down with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to his head. In the article the detective says, "this was an execution. Someone wanted him dead." My world has come crashing down on me. I lost my only parent left. My father. I lost my mother 12 years ago to cancer and now him to a horrible crime. My heart and my mind can't handle this. In exactly two months my father would be giving me away at my wedding.. I am supposed to be planning my wedding instead I am here trying to figure out how to go forward with my life and pay for his cremation. I decided to set this up to hopefully help me raise a little bit of money to help pay for him to get cremated. So he is not sitting in a morgue until I can afford it. Anything will help. Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
