RIP Monty! Thank You for training me in the phone company! Those lessons have paid dividends throughout the years. Bud, in all my years, I have never been in a cable without a black-orange! Every time I see the number 12 in life, I always think of you!

No was not in his vocabulary when it came to friends-he and Peggy were always there for Stuart and I. Ill miss that deep southern voice and laugh-always a story to tell.
