My heart goes out to Monty's REAL family, Belinda, Sam and Cathy. I grew up with him being in our family lots of memories but one of the funniest memory is at Christmas when he along with his best friend (my other brother in law Sam Stanton) wrapped a pig's tail up as my gift from them. I thought how sweet, then I opened the gift not really sweet but funny. Circumstances changed and by law he wasn't my brother in law but REALLY he will always be in our family. Monty will be missed.

Words can't describe the loss we have encountered. Monty was on of our good and best friends. We sit at the basketball games at David Crockett together. Always had a smile on his face. He will be missed. Thoughts and Prayers go out to Connie Sinks who I went to school with and graduated with. God Bless this family in the many days ahead.
