Richard Jones Funeral Costs

My father Richard A. Jones II of Bloomington, IL was in a fatal motorcycle accident Thursday evening, August 24th at 6:53pm. On top of losing my father, our family doesn't have enough money for funeral costs. He left behind his parents, brother & sister, wife and 7 kids; one of which was his granddaughter, Aubriella (3) that he  took upon himself to raise even after all of his kids were grown and out of the house.  I am still in shock and in disbelief that this has happend but I have got to be strong for him and the rest of my family. I am not sure how to even tell a 3 year old little girl that our daddy will not be coming home. I know that he wouldn't want us to mourn his death but to celebrate his life.. well it is much easier said than done. Time doesn't heal all wounds, you just learn to accept the changes and losses and move on. For everyone that knew my father, he was always there whenever any of us needed him and never asked for anything in return. So right now I am asking for your help.
