Final Resting for a Mom

Early morning on March 29th, 2019 my aunt Tammy was called home to be with God. Her death was very sudden as she was getting ready to celebrate her daughter's 16th birthday coming up. Now her adult son is scrambling on how to keep everything normal for his baby sister and becoming her legal guardian. My aunt didn't have much due to the fact she was disabled and it costs greatly to store and cremate her. Especially in the area she lived. We've (me & her son Alex) looked around for estimates from several place & it's still several thousand dollars to do anything.
  She leaves behind her 23 year old son Alex and 15 year old daughter Katybeth.  As a single mother she did everything she could to provide anything and everything she could to her children and never let any obstacle stand in her way of making anything happen for her kids.  Please help me & Alex give my aunt her final resting place so at least it'll be taken care of and so we as a family could ease our grieving & to try to keep life as normal as we can for her daughter. 
  My aunt was wonder woman in my eyes. She knew everything there was to know and she could make a meal out if anything as well as designing/making special outfits for her and her daughter by hand. She raised her kids to being loving and caring kids as well as strong and smart. With each of her nieces and nephews she taught them to them themselves unapologeticaly. 
  She was more than my aunt she was my best friend that I could go to and talk to about all the life struggles I was going through at a young age. She taught me to be a strong, opinionated, independent woman. If it wasn't for her I'd still be the meek and scared child I once was. Now it's our job to lay her to rest and to continue raising her daughter how she would have wanted.
