This is Thaddeus Montgomery. He was killed yesterday in the line of duty in Afganistan. I have not known anyone personally that had been killed in this war until now. He truly was a genuine person, a brother, loving father, son, and friend to many. He leaves behind many, including a son, his namesake. We got to know each other hanging out many moons ago at the water park here in Decatur. That was THE place to go when we were growing up. We had lost touch since high school but we had been emailing before his deployment catching up on life with each other.
This is his son. Please remember his family and friends as they deal with this tragedy.
I am a mother and a wife! I have been married for almost 5 years and have been blessed with two awesome children. I would not trade that for anything in this world. A reformed hippie who wears work clothes but still listens to freeing sounds of music. I love the Lord!
