Goodbye to my Daddy

As you can imagine, this is the last thing I want to be doing at this time, but I am desperately hoping this may work. As you know, we lost this beautiful man last week. When he passed away he left nothing but things of sentimental value that money cant buy, but anyone that has ever had to deal with the passing of a loved one will know it's not just emotionally painful, but financially crippling. Everyone has been so so wonderful, but as the only person in contact with him, it has fallen to me to pay for the funeral. Many people have mentioned a council, or 'paupers funeral', but it's something I absolutely cannot bear even thinking about. One of the things that I'm struggling most with is that when he left us, he was alone, and that is not how he should be leaving this life. I'm not asking for people to help me pay for white horses and limousines and I'm not expecting anywhere near the amount it's going to cost, I'm just hoping and praying that if anyone can help even just a tiny bit, I can give my daddy the dignified goodbye he deserves. Thank you millions for just taking the time to read this.
