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.

Jane and family, it saddens me to hear about Monroe. I remember you all living in our community growing up. I pray that God will wrap his loving arms each family member and give them comfort at this time of sadness. My heart goes out to each of you.

All Employees of Piedmont Truck Tires have wonderful memories of Monroe! We have all
enjoyed his jokes and cherished his visits to our business and of course have visions of him walking in with one
of Vickie's famous cakes which he was so proud to bring us.
Monroe had more flat tires than any person we have encountered and especially after being diagnosed with the
cancer. (We think maybe he flattened some of those tires so he would have a reason to come to the shop and
hang out where stories of times past between Mike and himself were told to many.) Our Dear Friend will be
missed greatly but we have the assurance of meeting again!
