Guestbook

‘Rico’, as his coworkers called him, will be missed by all who knew him. As a former fellow Nabisco salesman, I considered him a friend. At sales meetings, which is where I would mostly see him, we all enjoyed his dry wit, followed by that sly grin. Rest in piece Rico.

Aunt Joyce called me on Tuesday night to let me know this sad news. I think of Guin often and all the adventures my mom and dad got us into during our college days. I’m out of town so my apologizes for not being at funeral. Prayers for comfort and peace during this difficult time. Allen Orman
