Covid Death Need Funds for Funeral

My Daddy was  a simple man who was always there for his family. We always knew we were loved. I am grateful that he was my Daddy.
The month of October has been life changing for us. I was diagnosed positive with Covid on 09/29/20. I was in the bed for nearly 3 weeks. My mother was confirmed positive on 10/07/20. She was sick for about a week. My father began to show symptoms around the 3rd of October and he was hospitalized on the 7th. He was put on a ventilator on the 9th. He had several pre-existing conditions. The nurses who took care of him were great and did let us have a zoom call with my dad on his birthday, the 11th and the day he passed 10/21. 
We began making funeral arrangements over the phone while we waited to be confirmed negative. The bit of savings we had dwindled quickly. Originally, the director had stated we needed to pay half up front and the remainder in 30 days. This was a stretch, but attainable. When we went to sit with the director yesterday, they stated they need the entire amount up front. It has been a week since he passed and we need to have these funds ASAP.
My father never wanted to be cremated and I would like to at least be able to bury him.
I appreciate anything you can do to help.52195816_1603894618464165_r.jpeg
