My thoughts & prayers are with the Guerra family during your time of grief and sorrow.

I share these feelings with you all, as I remember My fellow letter carrier and Vietnam Veteran. He was a mentor that gave me the perseverance and mental requirements needed for a successful tenure as a Postal employee.

I will never forget his trademark smile and wit, that helped make my day seem worth while.

God Bless My Friend and his family.. 🙏
