Michael Hartgraves Burial and investigation

After searching 4 years for my missing father, i received the most devastating call and news ever. They found his remains that have been there for a year or more. My brother and I are grieving so painfully. No one expects to receive any news like this, that their father's remains were found, not his body. It's all very sickening and we are beside our selves. There are truly no words that could be expressed to explain the pain that we are enduring from all of this.
We have never been through anything like this before and would appreciate ANY help or donations that anyone could provide to us.

4 years ago was the last time we saw our father and he will never have the opportunity to be a father or grandfather to our children. We may never have the answers or closure that we desperately want.

Thank you in advance for your help and support during this time.

Update: changed headline to burial instead of cremation. We found out he wanted to be buried with his mother and father which we will try to honor.
