Michael Cartwrights funeral cost

last month our grandfather was diagnosed with covid after having it for 2 weeks he was admitted to the hospital due to his oxygen levels being to low, he was diagnosed with pneumonia and his lungs started crystallizing his wife (our grandmother) was diagnosed with covid shortly after and then their youngest daughter who is Down syndrome was admitted to the hospital shortly after for covid and pneumonia as well luckily after a few short days she was able to go home but after almost a month my grandmother has still not been cleared to go back to work. But our grandfather has took a turn for the worst he’s been on a ventilator for almost a week and went into Atrial fibrillation because he has a pacemaker in his heart he hasn’t maintained high levels in his blood  oxygen levels and as of last night he had a seizure. As of yesterday he was in drug induced paralysis but because of the lack of oxygen his kidneys are now shutting down so he is being put on dialysis now and his lungs are now completely crystallized And he is losing brain function due to the lack of oxygen he hasn’t eaten in over a week or even able to say a word.. We where told there’s nothing else they can do and the dialysis is to keep him where he is at now but will not help him get better and there isn’t any way his lungs will heal.. Times are hard for us now he doesn’t have a plot or any life insurance we where not prepared to lose another family member to covid within 3 weeks of each other! he has to be laid to rest in Graceville where our family church is and he’s currently in Cordele  Georgia also because of him being tall and having wide shoulders he’s needing a larger casket and just the casket is little over $3000. This is the most updated information we have but if anyone has any questions you can contact me, we want to thank everyone who is willing to help and ask for prayers during this hard time! UPDATE mike past at 3:05 with his wife and daughter by his side completely pulled off the ventilator and all medications and he crashed within 5 minutes of being pulled off.. he is now being held at the funeral home in FL till we get the funds to get the funeral started due to my grandmother not having much income they will now allow it to be financed.. we are now asking for prayers and donations to help get through these hard times.
