    Monte being a newfound brother had come up on stage one nite I was disc jockeying at the Legion in Leslie and it hit me that we were twins and later DNA showed why. Monty wanted to dj some day so we joined up on stage and gave the hometown gang a great nite of music. Now time to know his family and enrich our new family. Rest In Peace Monty. Love ya Craig Cooper
