Help our family raise the money to pay back the expenses for our father's funeral. Please show your support!!!

My father, Dennie, was a hardworking, drafting engineer, who has always worked and always had health/life insurance. Up until about a year ago my father was working, but then he got sick, he had a stroke and several heart attacks. Meanwhile, he was being denied any kind of disability, medicaid, and couldn't afford to keep the insurance from his former job. He went on long term disability and since his Dr. decided to tell SSI he wasn't disabled he was denied any SSI, he went on Unemployment. As my father had a very weak heart, the surgeons were telling us that open heart surgery was his only hope, last Thurs. 11/22/2012 our father passed away post surgery, on Thanksgiving. My father graduated with a bachelors degree and has worked every since he was out of college in his 20's until about last year, our father was only 58 as of 11/15/2012. I am one of 4 children, I have 3 older brothers and only one of them work or have any kind of stable job right now and then myself. We all have came up with 1300 of the expenses, but we are struggling for the rest and a tombstone for our father. The money we have got has all been from a loan we can't really afford to have. If there is anyone out there kind enough to open their hearts to us and help us in this time of need it's very much appreciated and would be paid forward!
