How can I delete rows based on the mon of the date in column A

My code below breaks with an error on this line : theDate = Cells(1, i)
Sub Delete_Rows_Based_On_Value()

Dim theDate As Date
Dim valueOfMonth As String

Dim i As Long
i =  CountRows("sheet1", "A")     'get the lastRow

While i > 0
theDate = Cells(1, i)
'valueOfMonth = Format(theDate, "MMM/dd/yyyy")
valueOfMonth = Format(theDate, "MMM")
If (StrComp(valueOfMonth, "Jun") <> 0) Then
    Rows(1, i).EntireRow.Delete
End If
i = i - 1
End Sub

Function CountRows(Sheetname As String, colName As String) As Long
Dim i As Long
i = 0
  i = ActiveSheet.Range("A1", ActiveSheet.Range("A1").End(xlDown)).Rows.Count

CountRows = i
End Function
