Funeral Funds for someone special

Hello, I am trying to raise money for my grandmother who passed away in Puerto Rico on Sunday October 1, 2017. My grandmother was the sweetest, kindest, funniest person you would ever meet. She was always there for people, she opened up her home to family, friends, and those who needed it. She was a loving mother, wife, grandmother, and sister. She was 85 years old, her bithday will be November 28. She died due to a heart attack in a nursing home after hurricane maria hit Puerto Rico. Lack of supplies, power, food, and water also played a part. She was worried about her husband who is 86 years old, sickly, and was home alone in the hurricane. She was also stressed and anxious because they kept moving her to different rooms. My grandmother was very nervous and alone when she died. She did not deserve to die alone and she does not deserve to be buried in the condition the island is in. Her home where my grandfather currently lives has severe damages. He is living with no power, barely any food and water, and part of his house is gone. They were together for 60+ years. The goal for her funeral is 4,500 and the rest of the money will go to helping my grandfather get out of Puerto Rico and fixing some of the damages of his home. My grandmother means the world to me and it pains me that I can not pay my respects due to the island being in the condition it is in which makes it impossible to take her great grandson who is two years old and we are not able to pay our last respects. I am asking to please help my grandmother have a funeral she deserved for the wonderful person she was and to also help my grandfather in this time of need.
