Lost my dad

I finally got to meet my dad after living 33 years without knowing his face. He came back to make amends with his wife and kids to get right with God. Amongst him coming home I got to meet a lot of Family along with 6 sisters. He became ill shortly after his return but him not wanting to worry us he kept his illness to himself. He got to meet all his grand kids and see his wife and kids mothers  smile and welcome him back without a question on where have you been.  During this time he lived alone in Osceola Arkansas in his 1br apartment. Suffering from prostate cancer and  other underline illness from age.(High blood pressure)  still able to care for himself until February 9 he complained of a headache and decided that he will lay down and go to the doctor the next morning he figured that always worked. Unfortunately his headache was a sign that he was having a stroke not just 1 stoke but Lunar stokes (Multiple small stokes). 10 years of having him back in our life we decide for the doctors to do whatever to save him.They Did!!  From the nursing home to home now. We got life insurance being that he didn’t have any, got him a house and his basic needs. (Commandment #5 Honor thy mother and father..) 6 months into caring for him the 7month he was gone. Now being that the policy is new it only pays back what was put into plus 10%. So that meaning we cannot afford to bury nor have a funeral. Next alternative is cremation which cost a lil over $1000 but it Christmas time with bills coming up and kids to care for $1000 sounds like a million. We just want to have him cremated to keep from struggling for funeral/ burial expenses.
