Please Help Me Bury My Father

Words can't explain how hard it is to deal with losing a parent, and I'm deeply saddened by the loss of my father. I'm even more saddened by the fact that his father - my "grandfather" - has a life insurance policy for my dad, but has stated that he will not use it to bury him...which leaves me to pay for all of the expenses to lay my father to rest.

I'm 20 years old, in college, and his only child. I can't afford to pay for a proper funeral or burial, and that is why I'm asking for your help. Any donation, big or small, would be gratefully appreciated.
