“He was like a brother to me. He was very giving. Whenever we all went out, he would help pay for things, we all took care of each other," said Almodovar's friend. 

The man said he wants to give his best friend the funeral he deserves, to honor their unbreakable bond.

He says Almodovar's family doesn't have much and they are still in shock. He set up a GoFundMe account hoping to raise enough money for a proper burial.

“This was someone that I spent holidays with and spent Thanksgiving, New Year's and just a lot of time with hanging out almost every day," said friend.
