Donald J Smith's cremation cost

This fund is to help with the costs of Cremation for my Father Donald J Smith. I got the call December 23rd 2014 that my dad had been sick for a couple of days and fell off the couch. He refused to go to the hospital when the ambulance came. I called him when I got home from work (about 6 o clock pm) Trying to convince him he needed to go to the hospital and he finally said he would go in the morning. I told him I loved him and he loved me too. Little did I know that would be the last time I would speak with him. My mom called me at midnight telling me dad was gone. The dr said he passed away from a heart attack. He was only 61 years old

It is February 5th and my dad's body still sits at the medical examiners office because my family doesn't have enough money for a funeral or a cremation. They were trying to get a medical school to take him but they all said he had to be pre-registered. I know my dad wants to be buried but we are at least going to try to get some money together to cremate him. Thank you all for listening to my story.
