Crying out for help , first time burying family

Forgive me if I'm all over the place , I've never had to do anything like this before and I'm at a total loss. Neither i nor my fiance come from wealthy or rich families and with the covid crisis and the constant stress & anxiety of obtaining new jobs and exposing our 4 year old has been more than I thought I could cope with , ontop of that this wonderful woman , my mother in law, the most amazing nana to my child suddenly passed away . She had alot of health problems for starter's she had 14 heart stents , a fake hip, a fake knee, got ran over by a car and caused serious damage to her physical health, countless minor heart attacks (nearly 1-2 a month). We knew her time was coming we didn't plan for it to happen now , she was hiding some other seriously life threatening illnesses from us because she didn't want us to panic , she didn't want to see her only grandbaby upset and distraught and it pains me deeply to know that my fiance's side of the family consist of about 3 and I myself only have my mom who is on a fixed income raising my two youngest sisters , their hands are just as tied as ours are. We are from Cape cod MA and when we found out we were having a child we came to Iowa so Annette (my m.i.l) could meet her first grandson and enjoy life with him before that chance was too late. Now that this happened we need to Cremate her , then we need to bring her ashes and ourselves back to our home town where the only ,little bit of family we have is left. I hope I didn't mess this up or approach it wrong I just am a giant ball of panic, stress , anxiety and deep sorrow for my poor baby who randomly remembers that his nana is never gonna wake up and for my fiance . ANYTHING LITERALLY ANYTHING will help , including sharing this , it means more than anyone will ever know . I've never had to put myself out there like this and ask for help but my family really needs it ! I can't thank you enough for reading and considering any form of help , prayers are also most definitely needed . Thank you thank you thank you ❤️48660256_1591642469270836_r.jpeg
