Help pay for my dad's cremation

On Monday, November 23rd, 2020, Joseph Decker, father to myself, brother to three, and uncle, cousin, and friend to many others, passed away suddenly in his sleep at the age of 55.
My dad was a kindhearted and loving soul who never failed to bring a smile to peoples' faces even in the darkest of times. His fun, radiant personality and contagious laughter inspired many others, family, friends, and more than likely strangers as well, to be their best selves and spread kindness and laughter as well as to open a warm and comforting hug to anyone who needed it.
My dad loved Harley Davidson motorcycles, making jokes and good memories with the people that he loved, and painting and sketching. He was an incredibly talented artist, and helped me find my own talent and passion for art at an early age. I have fond memories of his homemade french toast, and sometimes he would let me have mac and cheese for breakfast when Mom wasn't home while we watched cartoons and played PlayStation games. He always had a wild and fun story to tell, whether about his own life shenanigans or the things he and his dear siblings got into when they were young and full of trouble.
I can't believe this is really happening. My family can't believe this is really happening. We're all absolutely torn by this horrible and sudden loss happening in the middle of so much other hardship, and we're asking for goodhearted people to pitch in so we can properly honor his memory and his wishes. Every cent donated to help cover the cremation cost is much appreciated, and makes it all the more possible for us to be able to have a piece of him to cherish always. Please help me and my family do something nice for the man who made such an astounding impact on so many lives.
