I am so deeply saddened by his passing. He was a wonderful man and there really are no words that properly express his character. I remember all the family parties with him and your mother that we always had so much fun at. Tom and Paula may God bless you both during this difficult time.

I'm sorry for your loss Paula. Guy was a breath of fresh air. I'm glad that I was able to spend some time with him and my mother at Alexandria Bay,
NY. Even though Guy was battling Carcinoid cancer and other health issues he still managed to always have a smile and real zeal to live his life in spite of those challenges. You fought a tough battle right to the end. God bless you Guy!
