I was so sorry to hear of Montague's passing. He was a good friend in high school and throughout life. We loved playing basketball and football together. Had Montague played sports his senior year in high school he would have been one of the best in the area. We continued to play after high school and Montie improved with each year. I really miss those days and we talked every time we saw each other about the enjoyment sports gave us. I had not seen him in a while and I did not even know he was sick. My condolences to Tessie and all the family. You had a good father.

I would like to send my thoughts and prayers to the family during this difficult time. I knew Bokey and spent time with him at the VFW. He was so kind to me and everyone else that he spent time with. I will miss him dearly. We had so many good times playing cards at the post, or just hanging out. Bokey will be dearly missed.

Monty and I became friends over 40 years ago. We worked at City Laundry until he started his own business. He would bring his sons to work with him when they came to visit him sometimes. He was so proud of all his children. He had a good and caring heart for anyone in need. Even though I haven't seen him for a few years I will miss him. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. God bless!!
