Funeral Expenses for My Mother

On Tuesday, May 23, 2017, my mother unexpectedly passed away. The cause of death is unknown at this time. Unfortunately, with her passing at the young age of 52, she did not have any life insurance, will, burial plot or funeral services planned, nor paid for. My Grandmother, Mary Ellen Arnold and I, Stephanie Arnold, are about to face the extensive costs to put my mother to rest. 
Our goal is to give her an open casket viewing, followed by a service at Beall Funeral Home in Bowie, MD. We wish to then have her buried next to her grandparents, at Resurrection Cemetery in Clinton, MD.   
My mother was such a kind, caring, loving and fun person, who always put others before herself. Her absence will forever leave a void in my heart and life, as it will many others. 
I am usually not the type to ask for help but due to the diar circumstances, anything you could contribute would be greatly appreciated. ❤ 
Thank you all for thinking of me and my family in these trying times.
