I want to pay for my sisters funeral cost and services. Plus I want to take my family to Cuba to fullfill my sisters wish to have her ashes

I have 5 brothers and sisters. My mother was from Cuba. She met my Dad while he was in the Navy. I had one sister I was very close to. Her name is Patty. We both shared a love for the ocean and missed our Mom who was killed in 1987. Our Mom died at the age of 56.She was hit by a car crossing the street.
Patty and I dreamed of one day being able to travel to Cuba to find our Mom's family. We both cared for each other and we knew we would end up growing old together.
Well, my sister Pat died on October 13, 2011. Her death was unexpected and devastating. I feel this profound loss and pain. My sister wanted to be creamated and to have her ashes thrown into the ocean at Cuba. My sister was not rich. She lived paycheck to paycheck. She had no savings for funeral costs and services. Her funeral cost $4100 which had to be borrowed.
I would like to be able to pay back the funeral cost and to be able to take my other sisters and Patty's sons to Cuba to fullfill her last wish. Patty felt she would be closer to Mom if her ashes were placed close to where my Mom was born, Cuba. It would be a blessing to be able to get down to Key West and charter a boat to get as close to Cuba as possible. Taking my sisters ashes to the ocean would help us all in our healing process. Any contribution would be a gift from God. I pray that I will be succesful in this fundraiser.
