Funds to cremate Jack Ward

Jack is my ex-husband and my kids dad. He was found dead after he had been missing for 2 months. We are devastated. Zach (his son) and I just dont have the funds to get Jack cremated, and I feel a huge responsibility to do this. We are so grateful for everyone that has reached out and loved on us in this difficult time. Jack was such a bright spirit. Funny as hell, smart, committed to fitness, extremely talented artistically. He made his daughter a leather weight lifting belt when she was a toddler, and now at 24,shes the 15th fittest female on Earth. Zach works for Amazon, has Jack's dog Buster- and inherited his dads logic and thoughtfulness. He was so proud of his kids. He made jewelry for the kids, and countless pictures. He loved us all the best he could. He struggled with addiction, and he paid heavy prices for it. From what we know, that was NOT what caused his death. He believed in God, and that gives me great comfort. He had many(!) neices and nephews, and he loved them all. His sisters Bobbie and Sherri both preceded him in death, and that was heartbreaking for Jack. He had surgery for cancer on his lung the 1st of the year, and his heart stopped. The surgeons had to Crack his chest to save his life. Then covid hit, and his health really declined (emotional and physical health).  I talked to him for over an hour on the 21st of September, and we think I'm the last one to talk to him alive. I'm so grateful it was such a good and meaningful conversation. I'm going to miss him until the end of my days. We really need the money to cremate him. I wish I could scatter his ashes in the gym, his favorite place . Thank you all.
