Sending love and prayers for the family. I met Albert when I was in highschool and he always made sure that whenever I stayed the night with Lailene that I felt welcomed and at home. He was always smiling and always taking care of people. He had a big heart :) That's the Albert I knew. RIP Mr. Montoya, you will be missed.

It is in that insurmountable moment that I feel as though my heart has fallen into the abyss, where light can not penetrate my most deepest, warmest thoughts and memories of you. My internal clock continues to tick for I know that only time will allow me to heal and rebuild myself back to the person I once was before I let even the simplest of things slip through my filter in life. Replacement could never be obtained and sorrow will always remain as I think of the time I lost with you. Watch over us grandpa as we walk the road to recovery, for I know that when we get to that crossroad it will be you that we will look to for guidance and comfort...
