Monty was and will continue to be one of my biggest inspirations that I ever had/have. I was lucky enough to get a picture with him and get him to sign my foam iron minecraft sword during PAX Prime 2013, and I will honestly never forget him. Monty was a hero, an inspiration, and will forever be dearly missed.
“They say you die twice. Once when you stop breathing & the second, when somebody says your name for the last time.” (x)
I believe that the human spirit is indomitable. If you endeavor to achieve, it will happen given enough resolve. It may not be immediate, and often your greater dreams is something you will not achieve within your own lifetime. The effort you put forth to anything transcends yourself, for there is no futility even in death.

If Monty’s death was like a nuclear bomb exploding in the heart of the RT community, I like to think we’re all climbing out of the crater together as mutant superheroes empowered by the radiation he gave off.
