Jessie's Burial Expenses

I had a 35 year old daughter, Jessica, who took her life on July 12, 2017.
I would like to tell you a little bit about her. She liked to be called Jess, but she put up with me calling her Jessie. I was the only person she would allow to call her this, only because I was her mother! She had a great childhood. She loved camping, boating, water skiing, tubing, canoeing, many pets that she had during her childhood and early adulthood, her family and friends. She played the clarinet for 8 years during her school years. She played basketball and softball. She was a daisy and a brownie until she was 12 years old. She decided she didn't want to be a girl scout! She was always a take charge person. She had a lot of energy and was a very hard worker. She could be very stubborn and rebellious at times. She was a real firecracker! She was the mother to 2 beautiful boys, Nathaniel 14 and Alexander 7 years old. She loved her boys with all of her heart. At the age of 29, in 2012, we lost her father to cancer. This loss was very devastating to Jessie and she went into a downward spiral after his death. Life became very difficult for her. Her brother, Richard, and I are very proud of her for being an organ donor. We truly hope that this horrible tragedy will not be in vain. That as many people as possible will be able to benefit from her very generous desire to help other people.
I am asking for help with these funds to help pay for a burial for her. I am on a fixed income as I am disabled. I have no retirement funds and I'm not sure how I am possibly going to pay for this added expense. We cannot bury her until we have the funds to do so. Richard, her brother, and I, are in charge of final expenses and we wish to see her buried in a dignified manner. We greatly appreciate any help that we can get.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about our story and our dear, beloved, Jessie.
