Dear Grimes Family, I was very saddened to see that Mr Grimes had passed away. Every year he would come in to get his taxes done and we would spend a couple of hours talking about his life, with him telling me stories of his life. I always wanted him to come meet my family, but he never wanted to "Be a bother". He was a much loved and very enjoyable client whom I will miss very much. He was a great man. Our deepest sympathies, Doug & Misty Murdock
