Help Carmel and AJ get home to Nova Scotia

We are trying to raise funds for our sister and nephew who suffered a tremendous loss unexpectedly today. Our brother in law Jacob Albert (Jake) passed away at home in Slidell, Louisiana, at the age of 54 leaving his wife and 17 year son to mourn. My sister and nephew have no insurance or means of income to bury Jake or get back home to Nova Scotia. Carmel is not an American citizen and is unable to work due to medical reasons. Jake was unemployed since the beginning of the pandemic and they have been struggling to make ends meat.  Things have been extremely hard on our family since the passing of our father in 2016 and our mother March 2020.  We are trying to raise money for her to finalize affairs in the US and make it safely home to Nova Scotia where they will be surrounded by family and friends. Any and all help would be appreciated.
