Help Bury Dad

Our dad is dying a we need help with burial expenses. Dad is the father of 9 daughters, a Vietnam veteran, retired Sailor, a retired firefighter, and our hero. About 5 weeks ago dad start having strange symptoms, and a tightness in his stomach, by the time the doctors discovered that it was cancer, it was much too late. Dad has never once complained about the cancer, or the struggle that he has faced. Weeks ago we sat down and had an end of life discussion, and he told me that life had never short changed him, and there was nothing unfair about cancer. Being a passionate military man, dad watch many of his comrades die in Vietnam, so he always felt lucky that he came home, and was able to have a family. He truely is a hero, the kind that would never ask for a thank you, or brag about the good deeds he had done. He was a silent hero, and he deserves a hero's send off. The cost of a funeral and additional expenses is overwhelming, and he and mom are on a very fixed income. Please, if you can help in anyway, even just sharing, it would help. Thank you
