Please help my family bury my dad

My father was a great man. I know many people would say the same of theirs, but he was the force of unity for our family. He owned his own business as a contractor, and working was just as fun to him as any hobby. He was the provider, he was proud and he supported us all. He passed away on 2/22/2018, while at work.  He collapsed on the job site and the first responders did all that they could. As I write this, it's only been 2 days. My mother and siblings are trying all that we can to get by through this difficult time, but financially we depended on him. This was very sudden and we were sorely unprepared. My family and I only want to put him to rest and give this upstanding man what he wanted and deserved. The money we are asking for is going to be put towards his cremation, his embalming so that my we can take our last look at him in a good light before his cremation, a memorial/celebration service, the expenses to spread his remains where he requested, and for our immediate family to have a keepsake each with his ashes. Unfortunately, we don't have much time to be able to reach our goal, but anything will be such a great help. My mother will be in charge of the final expenses and will be delegating everything. I want to say that I cannot tell you how much my family truly appreciates those who donate to our cause, thank you.
