My Papa, Thomas M Dalton Passed Away

My papa, Thomas Dalton, turned 80, and we went to Canada to celebrate his 80 years as well as the 100 year birthday of the village called Erieau, Ontario, Canada. He spent every summer of his life there, as did I. It was magical. I flew home on August 1st. Then he became quite ill, suddenly, and I flew back to hopefully bring home home. But he passed away in his sleep, at approximately the same time my plane landed. He had very little life insurance, basically, because he spent every dime on his family, friends, parishioners, and everyone else before himself. Devoutly Catholic, we had a proper funeral which cost $10,000. Of which we have approximately $1500 from his only claim. I'm asking for help to pay the rest of the cost because I simply don't have the money which breaks my heart. I spent it all to take him to his birth place in Canada, and then for my return to bury him. Love has no pride, nor do I. Tears pour down my face as I'm writing this plea for help.
