Barzvi: Planning a Birthday
Guy Barzvi was excited about turning 30 next February.
He told his younger sister, Lori, that he was spending
too much time on work and too little time on himself. But
that was about to change.
"He was trying to figure out how he could have more
quality of life," Lori said.
The son of Israeli immigrants, Guy often wandered far
from his home in Forest Hills, Queens. He had traveled to
Seville, Spain, and yearned to return sometime soon. In
the meantime, he learned to salsa and strum flamenco on a
guitar. Not long ago, he began making plans for his
birthday. He had heard of a party scheduled for that day
at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum, and wanted to join
the festivities. His sister planned to invite his friends
along to sing "Happy Birthday." "He's just the best guy
that I've ever known," she said. "We're still hoping that
we'll find him."
