Guy was one special human being. I'll never forget how kind, loving and caring he was to my Mother, Babe, especially during her illness, always there for her. So many wonderful memories with Guido and our family. He was a beautiful soul with a contagious smile and I'll miss him, but I will consider myself lucky to have had him in my life. Rest in peace sweet Guido.

Guido is how I became to know his as. He and my mom Babe spent many years together before her passing. He was the best. I know of no other person who was so generous, personable, and well respected. I will miss him. God bless you Guido.
