    Dear Monnin family,
    My sincere condolences during this very sad time.
    I had the pleasure of working with Mike at Hazmat many years ago. He always brought a smile to my face with his quick wit and great sense of humor. Mike’s expansive knowledge and experience in the trucking industry was unmatched. That experience and his advice attributed to me keeping my job in my early days at Hazmat!
    This is how I will remember Mike. Helping others and making them smile.
    Sincerely, Tim O’Hara

    You and Mike are family Mary. We have such great memories of Mike and his great sense of humor! He loved tomato sandwiches with home grown tomatoes from the garden! He is definitely at peace now Mary. You are in our thoughts every day!
