Remembering Montie...


Montie and his daughter Christine Ciarlo













The thing I remember best about Montie is his smile,
which made everyone around him feel calm and welcome,
and he was the kind of person who took care of things.

He is deeply missed. - Jennifer Moretti














I remember Montie for his wonderful good humor,
which was combined with deep feeling and a serious intellect.

He always reminded me of a character actor from the wonderful movies
of the 30's and 40's. They don't make them that way anymore.

He is missed. - Kelly Easton














Every time I see a PT Cruiser, I expect to see Montie
behind the wheel. Every time I sit at an ASTAL meeting,
I expect to see Montie's kind face across the table.

It's still hard to believe he no longer graces us
with his physical presence, but he is with us in spirit always.

-Jennifer Basile














Montie - we miss your quick and hearty laugh, your deep caring,
and unfailing friendship. I think of you every day. Love, Pete














The more time I spent with Montie the more I understood that I was listening
to a true renaissance man. He had so many colorful stories about his past
careers, his family and the multitude of endeavors he was currently involved in.
I learned so much from him and always looked forward to his calming smile.

I miss that smile and all of the stories I never got to hear -- Christa














Montie, you are truly missed. We love you and
we are thinking about you. -Rich



















Montie, my friend and good right arm,
Thank you for the gifts of your friendship, your irrepressible humor,
your sense of joy, your calming solidarity, and your quiet,
but effective way of making things all come together.

I miss you, but you will always live in my heart.
-Jean
