Help lay Brady to rest

Hello everyone ... I’m not sure how to even start this.. I’m not one to ask for help... But as most of you know there was an very bad accident in Cedar Falls , Iowa Friday evening.. Unfortunately, My brother was in the back seat of that car that spilt in half. 16 years old, losing his whole life.. He didn’t even get to live an actual life.. He’s leaving behind two beautiful nieces that adored him to pieces. Myself, His big sister that he went to for everything.. And my parents , who lost their only boy.. My point of this post is, I need help. Again, I hate asking for help. But my mother is unfortunately in prison, all the way in West Virginia.. I , by no means have the money it’s going to cost, to get her plane tickets to come home long enough for his services.. With her being in prison , she thought she had the option to possibly fly in alone for a day then go back. Which means I’d only have to purchase her tickets. But as of now, it’s looking like she is going to have to have an escort. Which means I am now left to find enough money to get her tickets , as well as tickets for TWO officers to come with her. This is clear from West Virginia... It’s going to cost so much much. But there is no way I can lay my baby brother to REST without my mom being here with us to attend his services , as well as lay him to rest with us. I know he would want my mom here. And it would break his heart if he knew she wasn’t able to actually say her good byes I am basically doing this alone , as my mom is gone and my dad is completely isolated.. He lost his son , his best friend.. I have to do what I can , to make sure my brother is able to have my mom present for his goodbyes.. Also, I want to make everyone aware, that the money we do raise , is also for Brady as we have no money for his funeral, nor do we have money to bury him or even purchase his headstone. I appreciate everyone who has already done what they can to help. You’re all a blessing. I appreciate everything. I will be making an account tomorrow morning at Veridian Benefit account in the morning. Details to come.
