Mom's Cremation and Final Expenses

Hello Loved Ones!
My mother’s passing, has come at a time where I am experiencing my own financial troubles. Unfortunately, she did not have any life insurance in place to help with final costs.  

Despite my pride, I am asking for help.  I have been blessed with so much love and support, it really troubles me to even ask for anything else. But I am at a loss.
Here is the breakdown of the remaining costs.
Direct Cremation =$723
Trailer Park Space rent for December = $495
Finish paying off my mother's trailer = $1100
Go Fund Me Fees (8% of donations) = $185
Total Estimate Need = $2500

Social Security does not help in anyway, and actually will be taking back any money they deposited into her checking account during the month of December. I can not even access her account until 45 days from now.

My main and primary concern is to finish paying for her cremation this week. I have already had friends donate $165 towards that.  

Part of me knows I could just say "Forget it!"  towards the December space rent and paying off her trailer, but today I’m not that person.  I would like to do things the right way to honor my mother's name and my new way of life.

Any little thing will help. Thank you for all of your prayers, support, and positive thoughts.  It has meant the world to me.  I’m so grateful that I have not been alone through any of this.  

Love You All!
