Funeral expenses for our dad

My Father In Law was rushed into emergency brain surgery last Tuesday 12/5/17. The doctors removed a blood clot from his brain, but unfortunately, the damage was too much. With family around we had to make the unfortunate decision to remove him from life support last night 12/12/17, after the doctors told us there was 5% chance of him being able to wake up.

We are in need of help with funeral expenses for him. None of us expected this, and are in complete shock that this happened. If you can help our family in any way, we would appreciate any help we can get.
