Davon, Joel and family.
We are so sorry to hear of Montez leaving us but we know where she is. She loved the Lord and served Him while she could. We are so sorry we could not make it to the funeral today.

Dear Family of Montez Marsh Bell,
I am so sorry to learn of the passing of Montez. Although I have not laid eyes on your mother for well over fifty years, I remember her fondly as a sweet soul and a beautiful person and I am certain she remained so all her days. We were in the band together as a teenagers - I recall her being a majorette who was kind and friendly to everyone. God be with you in your loss.
