My sincere sympathy to Danny and his family in the loss of Monty. I remember meeting Monty when my son Rick and Danny worked together and spent time together. He always treated me with respect and kindness even when our boys were being boys and giving us gray hairs. If there is anything I can do, Danny, please let me know.
