Dang, I don't feel much better about this today than I did yesterday morning, what a loss.

Two more observations:

I always wondered, as busy as he was why Monte spent so much time on this board. I have got to think it was because he enjoyed it and that gives me some satisfaction.

A little while ago Monte was off the board for a while "because of some health issues". He told Al he was not feeling quite right. I have no idea what action he took in these areas but as it has been mentioned before listen to your body, find a good doctor and go see him, every few years for you young guys and more often as you get older. Then do what they tell you to do!. I don't know if Monte smoked but I would not be surprised. If you smoke or chew quit! There is nothing good that can come from it.

Met him at lights out 6 and drag week. Took time out of his busy schedule to offer help and encourage me. I will miss his knowledge and honesty. Not fair he was 6 years younger than me.

+1. It would be quite an endeavor to gather all of that up in one spot. He was involved for years, in conversations about everything under the sun.

Regarding looking for something positive to take away from this loss, I will put up something I posted on a Monte Smith thread in a local car guy site ...

I am not a shill for these products BTW. I am 9 yrs older than he was and really have beat reflux. Now working on not getting a heart attack as my BP is on the high side.

Despite being a fellow Mopar guy I have not really been able to get much of a personal relationship going with him. But if I had and he had confided those health issues with me I would have told him about putting baking soda into the water you drink, and forgetting about taking Nexium. It works for me and I used to get reflux pretty bad. Not any more. For the blockage I would have suggested what I am doing right now, which is the Linus Pauling therapy (search on vitamin C / heart disease) for removing plaque (in addition to cutting out as much terra-mined salt as possible.

I take a scoop (2500 mg Vitamin C / 2500 mg Lysine) of this twice a day:

I've been trying to make sense of Monte's passing since the news broke. I didn't realize how much I look for his posts because they were always direct, unfiltered, honest, and full of wisdom. Dang. RIP Monte.

Words of wisdom for you young guys… When someone like Monte Smith freely gives you knowledgeable answers it’s not because he’s a know it all, it’s because he has been there and done it and is just passing the experience along. Monte was such a person and the world of drag racing is diminished because of his passing.

My condolences to his family.

I like the idea and if it could be put into written form, with a chapter headed with the beginning of a post followed by the final word on the subject that would be very useful. Very much like the "Power Secrets" book by Smokey Yunick that I have in my library. It is too bad that he did not start writing a book before he died...but maybe he did?
