Foreign gfs dad died. Should I send money?

I have a girlfriend from the Philippines that I met years ago during a romance tour. Weve been together for quite some time now since we got together just a few months after we met. I immediately fell for her because of her good qualities. Behind her pretty face is a girl with good moral and character. What got to me most is her overwhelming love for her family.
She values her family so much that she even put her love life on hold for a long time. When we met, she was still in the early stages of finding love. I admire her determination of giving her family a better life. She said she wanted to provide for them the way their father used to before he got sick. I could see how much she loved her family.
I got a call from her recently and received the sad news of her fathers death. I knew he meant a lot to her. She said she has to stay off work for a few days to a week to deal with the arrangements of her dads funeral. Its going to be a long period without getting paid and I know her family would need the money. I really feel bad for them especially her.
It got me thinking, should i send her money? Whats the custom in the Philippines when somebody dies? Is it okay to give money as a sort of help for her family? Shes never asked me money before. Even now she hasnt asked anything.

Culturally, it is appropriate to send money (abuloy) or flowers.

Did you know her father? Do you know her family?
