The family of Chris Harris are trying to raise money to bury him, since he had no insurance . Please help with donations for funeral costs!

My name is Megan. My father passed away in his sleep from natural causes on September 16, 2012. He started having health issues 2 years ago and has never gotten any better from then on. He lost his job 2 yrs ago as well. Therefore, he lost his health benefits. He had health insurance a few months ago, but could no longer afford it, so he lost that too. He had many health problems such as Neuropathy, COPD, Chronic Cirrhosis of the Liver, Pancriatic Cancer, Hep C, Diebetes 1 & 2 (which is very rare to have both). He was on unemployment for these 2 years. He was trying to get SSI, but for some reason was denied. He was very eligible in my eyes to receive SSI, because he had all these health problems. He could barely walk as it was. He lived in suffering and pain for the past 2 yrs and it was very hard to see him go through that. He cried out to the good Lord above to relieve him from his pain and suffering. God answered my daddy's prayers and took him home where he belonged. He was one of the best dads in the world that you could ever hope for. He was very loved by everyone. He never judged anyone or looked down on them. He tried to help out the best he could at any situation. He was the type of man to give you his last dollar even if he needed it and the type to give you the shirt off his back literally. He was a good man. His best quality in my entire life that he had was he always forgave. He believed in the Lord and gave his heart to God. He praised God everyday and kept a smile on his face no matter how much pain he was in. He was truly blessed by God to be the good man God let him be. I will miss him very much. It makes it even harder to go through the sorrow right now, because of the expenses we have to pay out to bury him. It has been a struggle trying to come up with donations to help pay for his funeral and burial costs. Since he did not have insurance we went the cheapest route we could to let him have the burial he wanted. He did not believe in cremation, therefore we respected his wishes. I want to put my daddy at rest, but the expenses are still too much even for the cheapest they have. Please if there is anyone out there that has a heart to please donate anything, it would be greatly appreciated and you will truly be blessed by God. You may make donations out to three different places:
