Debbie and family: Please accept my condolences on Guys’ passing. He was a great guy and fun to be around. We all have some great fun at Trails End all though years ago. Rest In Peace, Guy…May God Bless You and your family, Debbie.
Though the years have passed and the distance have been great……the memories of the times I spent with my cousin Guy .will always live on……from playing in the fields behind your house in Whitesboro…to fishing on the River each year….playing golf at Twin Ponds ….or waiting in line for Easter Dinner ( which seemed like an eternity where you are a kid !!) they were always fun family times …..little did we know then how precious and fleeting those times were.
I never forgot , nor will I ever forget the times Guy and I shared growing up into young men, I write this with tears in my eyes ….Deb, Linda, Michelle, and Lori my heart goes with you in your loss… To live in the hearts of those we love is not to die…
With Love and Memories,
I’m so very sorry for your loss. Guy was a very nice man.
Debbie, So very sad to know that Guy has passed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you face the tough days ahead.
On a happier note, Our favorite memory is cruising down the River with both of you and singing along to Neil Diamond as Guy piloting “Always Tomorrow.” Treasured memories for us.
May Guy Rest In Peace.
I have fond memories of you and Guy growing up in Whitesboro and Owen and your mother at White Lake. RIP Guy.
