Mike was such a wonderful man to work with at Wal-Mart. He will be truly missed. My deepest regrets to family.
Family and friends, I want to thank you all for the prayers, kind words and your stories about Michael. Most of all I thank you for the donations you gave to help Zane and I get his Dad put to rest. Zane and I are devastated and trying to learn our new normal with Michael by our sides. He was my best friend and a wonderful Dad. I will always miss, love and hold respect for him.
My thoughts and prayers are with Melissa, Zane and all of Michael's family and friends. My heart breaks for you all.
I went to high school with Mike and also worked with him at Kroger Grocery. He was such a kind soul. Whenever the cashier had to close the store late, Mike would always escort whatever girl was working to her car. He made sure we got in safe and locked our doors. He made sure our car started and was on our way home before he would go back into the store for his night shift. I could never thank him enough for that. My deepest sympathy for your family.
Our prayers to all of you of your brother's, Mike, passing away. Now, he is with the Angels above.
Reggie and Randena S. Hartman
May each of you find courage to face tomorrow as you rest in the knowledge that we truly care about each of your needs and that we will walk beside you in your journey of grief.
Brett Gerber, Randy Grimes, Kris Hardiman and the Staff of DeMoney-Grimes Funeral Home
