“I am sorry we didn't know of Monte's death until the day after the funeral. Terry remembers Monte from the old packing house days as one of the strongest and hardest working guys there. Terry said there were lots of good memories including when he and Monte took the kids deer hunting (I think I was along on that adventure). Our sympathy goes out to all of monte's family. we will always remember Monte as 'one of the good ole boys' of whom we have many happy memories. ”

“I am so sorry for your loss. May 'the God of all comfort' (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God's Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.
