Help my Deceased Uncle Rest in Peace

Alex Dominguez, known to me as uncle Nino, lived a great life. He was a brother, a son, a friend, an uncle, a dad, and a grandfather. In the latter half of his life he became ill with kidney failure that lead to heart failure and for the last year of his life, He was constantly in and out of the hospital due to all of his illnesses that would eventually lead him to cardiac arrest and ultimately passing away on Halloween, exactly 30 days after his 54th birthday. Alex loved life, he loved his family most of all and wanted to live for us but a part of him also couldn't hold on much longer. When he was in the hospital the doctors told us to prepare ourselves but miraculously he got better. Although it seemed like he was in the clear he went into cardiac arrest saturday morning another 4 times. On the Wednesday before his passing my mother, grandmother, his son, and his daughter-in-law were able to speak to him not realizing it would be the last time they would ever speak to him again. He told them all he wanted to do was go home and eat a cheeseburger and that no matter what he loved us all.  Sadly he was not able to come home and passed away alone as no family was allowed to visit him in the hospital. My uncle Nino was sick and in pain for the last 8 years of his life, a life that although was filled with doctors visits, routine dialysis appointments, and almost around the clock care, he was happy. He was happy when his nurse Miss Victoria came to make sure he moved around the house, he was happy to watch TV all day with my grandma, he was happy when he saw his friends at the dialysis center, and he was even more happy when we had our cook outs and made him cheeseburgers. He wasn't able to work because of his illnesses and all of his money was used to help pay the bills for my grandmother and himself. He left this world with no money to his name but left us a heartful of memories. My mother worked as my uncles care provider thus her whole life and job was my uncle. With the harsh hit of COVID-19 many of us family members are in the same boat as my mother. We ask for this money because most of us do not have it much less planned for this. Although we never had this planned out we knew he wanted to be cremated as he told us he would be too claustrophobic too be buried. With COVID-19 the funeral home will only hold on to him for so long so we ask for the money as soon as possible as we fear he will not get a proper send off. Everyone in the family is distraught with his passing and I have become the person in charge of this gofundme. All we ask is your help, a word that is much too often heard nowadays but hard to act upon as we all are stuggling in these hard times, so we thank you for what ever amount you are able to provide. My uncle thanks you.
