I assume you are adding the address, salutation, and signature lines. So here is what I suggest for the body of your letter. First, put your request at the front, then fill in the details. I have provided you with a sample of how I would write this letter. Please feel free to use whatever suits your needs.

I am writing to request an extention of my emergency leave. As you are aware, I took a short emergency leave when my father was hospitalized. Unhappily, my father passed away due to illness and age on the 18th of this month. As I am the only son, it falls on me to fulfill the ceremonial requirements relating to his passing. I am therefore requesting that my leave be extended for ten more days in order for me to do this. Thank you for your consideration.

I hope this helps.
