Sincere condolences to Jacqueline and entire family. Christ said: "Those who wish to come after me must pick up their cross and follow me" Guy carried a heavy cross for such a long time. Surely goodness and mercy will follow him. He did more than enough penance for himself and his entire family for generations. He fought the good fight and finished the race. He's now a saint. Be consoled that he's now with the Lord and will continue to look after his entire family. God bless you.-Tony Piazza
