  2. Aida was always full of life and comedy while growing up in 29P. Her quick wit and personality was such a positive example of the way to live life. Aida will be missed and God Bless her.

  3. We extend our sympathy to the Guzman family for the passing away of Tita Aida . She was my fathers only sister. He cared for her dearly. The three siblings Tito Nardo, Dad, and Tita Aida had a unique bond that it was almost comical to watch the three siblings together. We will pray for her soul and may she Rest In Peace.

  4. Sending thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
