Mother Passed Away Unexpectedly At 53

My name is Sadie, and I'm 26 years old. I am disabled, and have no source of income. Which is why I am in such dire need of help in covering some of my mum's afterlife expenses. Because her estate as well as my grandma's estate are both in probate at the moment to where I have no access to any money she had saved. My mum, Angie Gilson, passed away unexpectedly in July 2020 at the age of 53, and as a result, I have been left with a gigantic financial problem that I alone cannot cover. Her cremation, along with her death certificates cost $3000 just on their own. I am currently not having a funeral as I cannot afford to have one since I cannot even afford the cremation itself. I currently live in my grandma's house who I unfortunately just lost to ovarian cancer less than a year, and a half ago. When I lost my grandma, Becky Gilson, it took a big toll on me, because she was my best friend. So to now have to try to grieve the loss of my mum as well as find the money to cover all these expenses that keep getting thrown at me have really been taking a toll on my mental health. My mum paid for all the bills at my grandma's, as well as the bills at her own home. So to go from having no bills to two sets of different bills overnight is a lot for me to handle. This whole situation is frankly a lot for me to handle. The sudden loss of my mum was very tragic for me, and will take a long time to recover from. Please just know that I am grateful to anyone that wants to, and is able to help me during this rough time in my life. If you had a memory of my mum you would like to share it would be wonderful if you could attach it to your donation. Thank you.
