To Carmen and all the Guido family - The heavens are singing now, you know they are. Big Carmen always greeted me with a smile on his face and praise in his soul. He always called me Roe, which makes me smile tonight. He loved his family and his family adored him. Simply put, Carmen was a good man and a blessing to those that knew him. Heartfelt thoughts are coming from a friend in California.

I was in the Windsor Locks HS class of 46 and remember Carmen well.
Having known over 20,000 people, Carmen was one of the best. It is my loss I did not see more of him. We did have a nice talk at the last HS class reunion.
MY deepest sympathy to all of you.

I have been BLESSED to have known Carmen and his wonderful family. I'm ever so thankful for the times I've gotten to spend with Carmen, sharing his so interesting & entertaining stories of a long and fruitful life. I'll never forget his "special" sense of humor and his sharing his spectacular artwork, he certainly had an awesome talent. Carmen will be so horribly missed, he was a very special man, very loving and very much loved.
To Carmen's family, I can only say, thank you, thank you for letting me be a part of Carmen's wonderful life and all of yours. I can't thank you enough for letting me become "family" with such an awesome family. My condolences, prayers and love to all of you. Carmen, I know you are now at peace as you deserve to be. Love and missing you.
