    Rosita y familia: con mucho pesar hemos recibido la triste noticia de la partida para no volver de nuestro queridísimo amigo , no me puedo maginar el dolor para ti, los chicos y los nietos. Se que en estos momentos no existen palabras de consuelo para todos Uds. Dios y el tiempo serán los encargados de mitigar un poco este dolor pero él siempre estará presente y siempre los cuidara.

    Dr. Renato Montero was very sincere friend, an excellent Pathologist and a dedicated family man. He had many talents and virtues. He was calm, serene, methodical and dedicated to his family and his profession. I had the opportunity to share his friendship. Rosita, his companion for many years was always at his side to love and advise him. We will miss him, but we
    shall always remember him as one of our best friends. Rest he in peace.

    This is a shock to Dale and me. I so enjoyed the many times I’d get to partner tennis with this lovely man at the Oak Brook Bath and Tennis Club. So very sorry to read this.

    I was so sorry to hear of the suden lose of Jose. I playes tennis with him and it was always such a joy. He was very competitive and enjoyed the moment spent with friends. I pray that your hearts will heal and you you find yourselves remembering the wonderful moments you all have shared. May he rest in peace back in the fathers arms. Take care of yourselves.

    Condolences to the Montero family. I met Jose on the tennis court a number of years ago. I have enjoyed playing with and against Jose – a very clever tennis player, and always a gentlemen! We shared a Sunday morning slot for the past three years. Will miss playing tennis as well as discussions re topics of the day.

Leave your condolences.
