GARFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio —  He’s a little boy with a big heart. Micheal Diamond, 8, is using his Kool-Aid to raise money for his grandmother’s funeral.

He decided to become an entrepreneur after his grandmother, Bobbi, died from cancer last Sunday.

Micheal likes to remember her for everything she did with him and taught him.

“We went to the park across the street and had a bunch of adventures. I’m going to remember… the way she taught me… have manners and say please and thank you,” he said.

His grandmother’s lessons are still fresh in his mind. Now with his newfound business sense, he’s setting his sites on a more permanent drink store. He says he’d call it “Drinks and Snacks.”

Micheal will be selling his drinks from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. through Sunday. He hopes to be able to make a real difference in Bobbi’s funeral, which is scheduled for Tuesday.
