Always think of Jim this time of year when he did fried fish for our work celebration lunch or deep fried turkey. Jim was a great guy - always willing to help when you needed something done. You will be missed Jim. Praying for family during this difficult time.

Monkey, there’s so much Sam and I could share. I guess my favorite memory is when you and I beat all in shuffleboard 15-0. We both gave a high five and giggled. Just seeing you and Sandra was memory enough. Sam & I love you my friend..Barb& Sam

Mr. Montgomery welcomed me into his home and treated me like one of the family since the first time I met him. My father would often drop me off to spend the night with Pam and I remember Mr. Montgomery and my father always having long conversations before he left. They enjoyed speaking to one another. My father passed away 25 years ago, but I am sure he was there to welcome and shake Mr. Montgomery’s hand upon his arrival to The Father. May he rest in love.

All my love to the Montgomery Family.
