My Father's Cremation Costs

My father recently and suddenly passed away. Leaving behind my mother, brother, and sisters. His passing was sudden and unexpected and as such we have had no end of life plans in place. Memorial costs are expensive and we've been blessed to have the Pastor David Heath at the River of Life Outcheach church provide memorial services free of charge for my family. However the cremation costs are still out of reach. The most inexpensive option we have found is a direct cremation through Elias Funeral Home in Streator, Il. However, those costs are still coming out to be $1,500 up front. My family and I do no have this kind of money available
to us and my father leaves behind no estate. 

Any amount helps us to be able to put my father's body to rest and is appreciated greatly.

God Bless.
