Please help with my daddy’s cremation and urn

This pic of my daddy was made on April 25th as he celebrated his 71st birthday. He was eating cake and ice cream and enjoying all his birthday gifts. On April 28th we found him unable to move and unresponsive so mama called his hospice nurse. We all agreed to have him sent to the ER for more evaluation and never in a million years was I expecting to hear the news that I did from the doctor. After a few hours, the doctor called and told me that he showed signs of dying and they only expected him to live 24-48 hours. He already had COPD and had had it for a while. Daddy had gotten pneumonia and went into heart failure and his body was shutting down. We weren’t able to go to the hospital with daddy because of all this covid and so he spent all day there by himself. Late that night he was finally transferred to Hospice Family Care and was placed on 15liters of oxygen and drastic comfort measures were being used. We were only allowed to back one at a time to see him, not as a whole family. What was so sad and I know that they were only doing what they were supposed to do, but mama was in the room with daddy while the rest of the family sat outside his window and talked to him, YES HIS WINDOW. Late Wednesday afternoon I had left and went home to get my grandsons because kids weren’t allowed up there. I was laying in bed cat napping with my phone literally on my shoulder and my ear bud in my other ear to make sure I would hear the phone if it rang. At 11:32p.m. the nurse called me and told me that I needed to come be there with my mama that my daddy had just passed. My sweet sweet daddy got his wings at 11:15 p.m. At 11:15p.m. is the time that my heart shattered! We went yesterday to make arrangements for his cremation and to pick out his urn. He didn’t have any life insurance and we are in desperate need of help with his arrangements. Any amount will sincerely be appreciated  more than words could ever explain. Thanks for taking the time the read this!
