Support for the Prado Burciaga family

On Sunday, December 6th, Miguel Angel Prado Burciaga known as "Smerk" or "Pol" was shot in an elevator leaving his cousin's apartment and passed away shortly after in the hospital. He leaves behind a large family; his sweet 2 year old boy, girlfriend-mother to his son, his father, mother, sister, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins and countless friends that love him dearly and can't imagine life without him. 

Smerk was generous, a good friend that you could count on. Energetic and fun to be around. Always cracking jokes, with that smile on his face that will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him. 

The funds will be used to send Smerk's body to Mexico, so that his mother can see her son for the last time, she is unable to travel. Smerk will then be returned home to Salt Lake City, UT where he will be laid to rest.   

Thank you.  Anything you can contribute is greatly appreciated.
