I am so sorry for your lose.. Guy was a friend to many and I counted myself as one. We taught Ag. together until I got out of teaching. He helped me many times during our time teaching and remained friends after teaching. He left his mark on so many during his time and will be missed by all. Praying for the family during this most difficult time.

Guy was always a silent partner in our family. He and Mike would talk on the phone almost every day!! He will be greatly missed by so many but will be with his heavenly family and that is the goal of all Christians!
