John and I were so sad to hear about Guy's passing. We always enjoyed seeing him on our trips home and I hope he felt like he was a part of our family these last 8 years. He brought much happiness to my mom and I think she brought much happiness to him. We are grateful that we had an opportunity to get to know him and will certainly miss him. All the best, Dana (Critz) and John Abernathy
