Thinking of you all in loving thoughts and prayers in this sad time. My Dad loved his brother very much as we all did. Now they are reunited and for that I'm happy. With much love.

Guido will be greatly missed after 65 years of wonderful "sisterly" friendship. With love and prayers to my nieces and nephews, especially his son Paul, who took such great care of his Mom and Dad. Love,
Auntie Aulie

My mom and grandmother said it best! My thoughts and prayers to all of the Valenzola's! He always made me laugh and was so much like my grandfather! Love, Marisa (millspaugh) Graham

I remember visiting Auntie & Uncle at their home in Florida and going to Daytona Beach with them and my parents. I remember seeing my dad and uncle standing at the waters edge talking and I thought to myself I will always cherish this moment. In some ways that seems like yesterday. Our family has a lot of wonderful memories like these to look back on, parties at Uncle Charlie and Auntie Aurora's, Auntie Josie and Uncle Salvie's, and our house. I cherish those memories and thank God for them. RIP Uncle Guido Praying for comfort and peace for all of you through this very difficult time. Love,
Diane and Joe

Sorry to all of the Valanzola family for your loss. Cherish the memories!
