Please help me bury my Grandmother. Its been two weeks since her passing. We have no funds for her.

My grandmother died October 4th 2012. Its been two weeks so far and she is now at Mount Castle Funeral Home. We have no money to bury her. If you feel uncomfortable about donating on this site, dont be, this a secured site. Unfortunately my aunt had an insurance policy on her for 18 months and when the time came for her to collect the money to help for funeral costs, the insurance said they do not cover cancer. 18 months of payments went into the insurance pockets and left my grandmother with nothing for her funeral. For the people who did not know her, she is a strong willed feisty woman. She lived with Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis which started in her early 20's and took over her body. She raised five children, four grandchildren, and has met two of her great-grandchildren. In her last weeks of life we took her to the hospital thinking it was a UTI and ended to be cancer spread through her whole body, starting from her bladder, then her stomache,kidneys, bones, and ending in her lungs. With every breath she took she fought for it, to hold on, to live. I had a bad feeling earlier the day she passed. My aunt called me in the evening and told me told me to get to the hospital quick, as I reached her room I seen the look on her face as she was slowly passing. I held her hand, told her I love you maw, duke (her eldest grandbaby) loves you too, from that moment the machine had a flatline and she finally passed as i sat next to her bedside and held her hand. The cancer won but she never gave up. Please help me bury my grandmother and send her to her final resting place. I would really appreciate it, just to send her physicallity resting, since her spirit is already at peace. Any donations will go to my aunt who is making all the arrangements for my grandmother.
