PD Angel Gabriele's Funeral Expense

On 2/23/2016 my father, PD Angel Gabriele passed away unexpectedly.  I am his only child and therefore am responsible for overseeing his final arrangements. My father had no life insurance that I am aware of. He lived a very modest life and made due with what he had. He had no income other than social security and no savings to his name. He sat at his desk and did drawings to sell for spare cash to help with bills. Many were recreations and he was very talented. We had spent a very long time apart due to unfortunate circumstances but in the past 3 years had re-connected and grown very close. My children absolutely loved their grandfather.  I remember a conversation where dad told me he did not ever want to be cremated. I want to raise enough money to be able to grant that wish for him and give him a proper burial through Grandstaff Funeral Home in Wabash. I am not one to ask for money from others. I have been independent my whole life but I am really at a loss here. Any contributions to help me give my father a burial would be greatly appreciated. Anything helps.  Thank you.
