My Father's Funeral Expenses

On Oct. 25th, I found my dad, Barry Szajkovics, passed away alone in his home.  My father was the most funny, caring, kind-hearted, loyal, loving man you'll ever meet and my brother and sister and I were lucky to call him our dad.  In recent years my dad struggled with various health issues which left him in severe pain most of the time.  During these struggles he always remained upbeat, optimistic and never lost his faith in God.  Although my mom and dad did not live together for most of my life they were still there for each other.  Since my dad was unable to work due to his health issues, he struggled financially and had no life insurance.  Due to these circumstances there is no money for his final arrangements.  My mom is doing her best and stepping up to make sure that my dad can have a proper burial, but it pains me because she is already raising my sister's children and has enough on her shoulders.  My mom is always taking care of everyone else and never asks for anything in return.  So  for this reason, I would like to ask for your help in lifting some of the burden my mom is facing.  Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.  I know my mom would never ask for help herself which is why I'm doing this.  I know it's what my dad would want me to do.  If you can't give financially, please share and keep us in your prayers.  Thank you all.
