Losing my grandma to COVID-19

Hi everyone, I can’t believe I’m even writing this today we unexpectedly lost my grandmother to COVID-19 at 10:15AM. Everything reals so surreal because last Thursday my grandmother was okay and than Friday she felt sick. Saturday we rushed her to urgent care and last night she was rushed to the hospital where her heart stopped for 15 minutes. She fought and came back to us but had to be ventilated. Waiting outside in the parking lot and receiving the devastating call that she left us. 

With the unexpected loss we haven’t had the chance to process and say goodbye. My grandmothers wish was to not be cremated and we are having a hard time
coming up with funeral cost.  My grandmother always saved up for this time in her life but last year her house burned down and that put us through difficult times. She was also caring for my aunt with lupus and her kids. We are trying to have a funeral that she deserves. Anything helps, please help us lay my grandmother to rest the way she wanted.
