[12/06/16] Chris asked me to let everyone know about Brian Montanye passing
..
Last night a very important family lost an amazing man
A caring loving man a Husband, a Father, a Grandpa, a Brother, a Son, Family Member, a Friend who will be forever missed Brian Montanye (grandpa Brian) you will never know how much you meant to me your whole family is my family at heart and have made a huge difference on my life and on my kids life we love and will miss you so much words can not explain.
