Our condolences to the family on your loss. We were 12th floor neighbors at the Waterford Lifespace community with Joe for only a short period. His infectious smile and laughter made an impression on all who knew him. He always reminded everyone how happy he was in his new home. We also miss his active participation in our weekly "Hot Topics" conversations on issues facing our country. Farewell Joe.

Dear Uncle Joe,
You will be greatly missed by your family and friends. Thank you for all the great times we had together when you came to visit us in California. Thank you for the caring ways that you and Aunt Joyce always had in welcoming others into your home. May you now rest in paradise with your beautiful wife Joyce knowing that Jesus will be with you eternally.
Love and Hugs....Lori Beth, David and Dawn Isherwood

To the Guzzi family, I offer my heartfelt condolences on the loss of Mr. Guzzi. I never had the pleasure of meeting him, but from reading the entries in this Guest Book, I now have much better understanding of where my dear friend Mark gets his selfless personality. I also now know where Mark got his infectious smile. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time.

Godspeed, Mr. Guzzi.

To all of Joe's Family... I say, May God Almighty bless you with "the peace that surpasses all understanding" in knowing that Joe is "absent from the body and present with the Lord" ! My name is Victor Grablachoff and Joe hired me 10/29/1979 and allowed me the good fortune of working with him. He was a true gentlemen in every sense of the word.

To the Guzzi Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. My parents lived across the street from yours in Hobe Sound and I enjoyed both of your parents company on my visits. And one since your Mom passed just with him. He was always a joy to be around. I have a lot of fond memories.
