To Doc and family
Hi Carrie and family:
We have missed you and Dan (Doc) since you left GC. Doc was and has always been an inspiration to our work and to all of us. The years as our Medcial Director were very special and we certainly had some of our best years with Doc as our lead. He was professional and real at the same time. His passion for life, for you, for grandkids and golf were always so much fun. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all the people that his special set of skills touched and healed.

My deepest condolences to Carrie and the rest of Dr. Montgomery's Family. It was joy to know him, to have worked with him. He loved to talk about his wife, his pride in his daughters and the joy of having grandchildren. He was so dedicated to helping others, teaching those he worked with. It is my hope that he was able finally retire and enjoy some time with his family prior to his terrible tragedy. I really could never imagine him fully retiring as he was dedicated to his profession. I am saddened that I had not kept in touch over the past few years but I have quite often spoken very fondly of him over the years since he left. Take care of yourselves.
