A Dear Friend Comes Over For Thanksgiving Dinner

23 November 2012, 08:30
Elena, Luah and I were just most privileged to have Monty Heying share our Thanksgiving dinner.

It has been my honor to know Monty for almost 40 years. Monty started with the sad problem of growing up in an orphanage. Despite this bad start he got a college degree from the University of Texas at Arlington.

He passed the very tough examination for Certified Public Accountant. He volunteered for service during the Vietnam War in the US Marine Corps. He could have used his education and qualifications to get a soft office job. Instead he trained to be a combat infantry man.

After completing his enlistment in the Marines, Monty went on to have a distinguished career in corporate finance. He raised two wonderful daughters and is now a grand father.

His new adventure in life is his career as a writer. His goal is to share with others the hard experience of being an orphan. Elena, Luah and I realized how lucky we were to have parents who loved us and tried to give us a good start in life.
