My twin son Ryan was killed in Iraq on July 3 2005. He
was a great person and son. He always had a smile on his face and tried
to make others happy. His moto was if you meet someone without a smile
give them yours. He and his twin brother Bryan were best friends among
being twin brothers. Bryan was also in Iraq with Ryan when he was
killed by an I.E.D. Ryan has many family members that love and miss him so
much. Ryan had a 4000lb. mini truck that he pulled "Thunderstruck" that
was his pride and joy. Ryan was a true hero because he was never
selfesh and gave 200% to family and friends just to make their day better.
Ryan was a great human being and a fantasic son. He will live in our
hearts and souls forever. He is missed so much by so many. Ryan I love you
with all my heart and soul!.
Love Mom

In Honor Of Ryan  Montgomery
Ryan,is my nephew. He was killed July 3rd,2005 by an
I.E.D..Our world hasn't been the same since that day. It's still hard for
me to understand how a young country boy like Ryan could be killed over
there. You just don't think it's going to happen to someone you love. But
believe me it does. Ryan was such a special young person. Always smiling
and trying to make everyone else happy. He loved his family very much
and they loved him even more. Ryan has a twin brother Bryan. Whom also was
in Iraq with Ryan at the time of his death. So now Bryan carries on
without Ryan smiling and trying to keep us smiling. But it gets a little
harder to do around this time of year. But we'll keep trying for you
Ryan. We miss you,love you and will never forget.I LOVE YOU! AUNT JAN
