    Cindy –
    Just two weeks ago, we celebrated Thanksgiving at my sister’s (Alice and Fred) home. Little would I have ever guessed that Monte’s life would end so soon. You are in my thoughts and prayers for grace and strength, during this difficult time of loss. May Monty rest in peace in heaven, forever.

    You are in our thoughts prayers. Monte was a great friend and truly “One of the Good Guys” and he
    definitely “Had A Need For Speed”. He will be missed by the entire racing community, there aren’t many gentlemen racers left and now there is one less.

    Don’t think of him as gone away – his journey’s just begun, life holds so many facets – this earth is only one.
    Just think of him as resting from the sorrows and the tears in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.
    Think how he must be wishing that we could know today how nothing but our sadness can really pass away.
    And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched…. for nothing loved is ever lost – and he was loved so much.
    To express Sincere Sympathy in your sorrow our thoughts and prayers to you during this most difficult time.

    Monte was a great guy. Will be missed by many. He was a great mentor to our son, Christopher. He placed a lot of faith in him as a young man and gave Chris a job driving Monte’s fancy rig, hauling his NHRA Drag race car all over the U.S. & Canada. Chris also drove for Bailey Trucking and thought of Monte like a second Father. Chris, would be there for all of you at this time but he died in July of this year. On behalf of Chris and ourselves, you have our deepest sympathy. Trust in our Lord to see you through these difficult days.
    Sincerely, John & Barbara Amos

    Scott & Mark Haynes are my brothers and I know they are going to miss him dearly. I had only met Monte out at the shop a few times when I had stopped in to say hi. He seemed like a great man and is going to be missed greatly. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time. Monte is resting peacefully now and forever.
