I remember riding bicycles on dirt roads way out in old Hoovertown before we ever started kindergarten. He was a great guy and even better friend. Monty will be missed. Rest In Peace.

I am so sorry for your loss. I am a cousin on the Thomas side. Timothy and Eula Thomas were my grand parents on my mother's side - Kathryn Patterson.
Your loss is great I pray you will find peace in your heart with Monty's legacy.

So sad as we get older we move on and donโ€™t get to see our family as much as we like. I know you was a good son by visiting with your mom via mail. RIP
