Monty was one of my "woodcutters" to my Little Red Riding Hood character in the first grade at Highland Elementary. Enjoyed that time we had class together. Our family moved to Longview that year and I didn't see Monty again until high school. Your family is in my prayers. May you find comfort and strength in our loving Heavenly Father.
