Burial costs for my Neighbors wife

I am posting this for my neighbor Steve, who does not have internet access or know how to use a computer, but this is HIS story an what happened Friday afternoon:

I came in from walking our dog two days ago and found my wife struggling to breath.  I immediately called 911 and they talked me through CPR and during the chest compressions she vomitied up a lot of blood and then passed away.  My sole source of income is Social Security and that is not anywhere close to enough to pay to lay her to rest.  We had no life insurance as we could not afford it with one income (Social Security) and both being disabled.  I am in need of the money to provide me wife with a proper funeral and casket.  The picture above is just one I could find on line and not the casket we are going to use, as we are going to go with whatever we can afford from any gifts and donations we are able to get through the kindness of people like you.  I am out of options and don't know what I am going to do.  This was not expected and she was only 42 yrs old, in the prime of her life. She was the love of my life and we have been together since we were 14 yrs old.  All I am asking for is the chance to give my wife a proper burial, nothing extravagent, just a way to send her off in a respectful manner for her journey home to meet the Lord.  If you can help at all, it would be greatly appreciated and ALL proceeds from this will go directly to her funeral costs. Anything you can give will help at this point as I have no idea what I am going to do now.  I just lost my best friend, mother of my children and love of my life.  Now I can't even afford to bury her.  If you can find it in your heart to help me, please know it will be very much appreciated.  Thank you for your time in reading and considering my request for help.  God Bless You All!!
