I met Monty in pre-school, Mrs. Cooper's Kiddy Kollege to be exact. Living close to one another, we hung out and rode bikes together around the neighborhood. As we grew older we went our different ways but always remained friends. After high school, I moved away and we lost touch until Facebook came along. I loved our chats but never got to see him again. There was always "tomorrow". Well, there are no more tomorrows and I am sad that I never got to see him again. Thanx for the memories my friend. You were an amazingly kind soul and will always have a place in my heart. My condolences to your family.

I can not make it to the ceremony but my heart is with you. He stood up in my wedding. Monty was a great friend and we had lots of laughs. I hope heaven enjoys him as much as we did.

Monty and I were both in the Class of 85. I left McHenry shortly after graduating, but still remember Monty. He was a kind guy who cared about everyone.
