Eileen, Bob and I extend our love to you and all your family. Guyer was quite a guy and we will miss him - especially his unplanned visits to our “pristine” house. We loved having him here for the year he toiled on our old house and got it looking spectacular and pristine as he called it. He was a steady support and influence on Wed nights, full of wit and wisdom. He was like a sponsor to Bob. We miss him.
