Karen and Family: I was in touch with Karen several years ago and you, Karen, e-mailed me to update me on your dad as I was trying to make contact with him. We finally made contact with each other by letter. Dad an I served in the U.S. Army for 2 years stationed in Germany. Guy was one of the nicest person I had the good fortune to be friends with. I always remember him as an outstanding soldier. His family should be proud of his service to our country. His reward is that he is now in Heaven with your mom and Jesus. God Bless the Bonina Family.
