This is a shock to me ,I talked to Row in late January early February always cutting up going on , Row his dad and my dad were good friends i use to like just sitting and listing to them go on about something when they got together , i can remember them laughing , from the day Row was working on a ladder leaned up against a trailer and dad letting the jack down and scaring Row to Jim telling Row he wanted hire dad to see how a cow killer worked . The last time i called him i told him i would call him in a few weeks to see how he was doing , i hope we will meet again one day , every time you were around i learned something . the world has defiantly lost a good man father and friend , prayers going out the Vicky Chris and Jonathon

My condolences to Vicki and all of Monroe's family. I have known him since he was in high school and washing trucks at Cope Trucking. He was one of the great people I have known. He will be missed by all. My prayers are for you.
