Funeral Expenses for Wayne Smith

I don't even know where to begin. Daddy could be stubborn and hard headed, but he had such a good heart. He would give the shirt off of his back if someone really needed it. Daddy had some tough cards dealt to him in life, but he took his cards and did the most that he could with them. He raised me, a little girl, by himself AMAZINGLY. He was such a good Daddy. What do I say? Do I say that he was a Jonesboro Police Officer or how much he loved watching Paw Patrol with May May? I feel like my Daddy is going to be fine and is just waiting to come back home to us, but that's not the reality that we are having to face. Daddy had a bad heart, but he overcame all of his complications. Every heart attack he had, he bounced right back. He was up within a few days mowing the yard and working on things. Nothing could keep him down. Daddy was invincible....until he wasn't anymore. It was so unexpected and happened so fast. His heart quit. It couldn't bounce back this time. I hate to be asking for money at this time, but Daddy didn't have insurance. By the time he had almost been at the police department long enough, it shut down, and when it reopened he was too old, so the expenses are being left to us. The funeral costs are $6,400 and realistically I doubt we could raise that much, plus I want to pay some. That's my Daddy.
