    My heartfelt sympathy to the family over the loss of a great man. I never saw Mr Montgomery fail to put a student first. He truly cared for each and everyone of us as evidenced by his words and actions. The world lost a good man but heaven gained a blessing. Listen to your heart, grieve in your own way, but never forget to smile and remember the good times and the number of lives he touched.
