I did not know Gus, but I did know Chris so therefore I know what a wonderful father and role model he was.My daughter Karen and Chris were best of friends along with Paul.You saw one of them you usually saw all three. My deepest condolence to all the family. May your sadness be tempered by knowing his joy of being again with Chris. They really never leave us ,we just can't see them. I am certain he and Chris are watching over their loved ones.

Sending my sincere condolences to Gus's family and friends. I will remember him as an incredibly sweet, kind, and sincere man. It was great to see him and visit with him in 2005 when he visited family in ND. God bless you all during your most difficult time in life.
