Fathers Funeral Expenses

So as yall may have heard my father(Gerard Dougherty) was found dead in his apartment today. Im at a loss of words and none of this seems real. My father was the person I looked up to, the person I could call if I ever needed anything, and honestly he is the only person that truly understood me and supported any decison I made. In the past my dad suffered from a serious drug addiction. Everyone has there ups and downs in life and my father did the best he could with his struggles. My father was clean and hasnt been on drugs for almost 2 years. He was honestly the only person I could count on for anything. My father was a very kind and loving man and always put other people before himself. If you personally knew him you knew the kind of man he was. This tragedy was very unexpected and my family doesnt have the funds to give my father a proper burial. If you are fortunate enough to be able to help please do. Anything helps and God bless.
