I met Father Guy in May of 2014 and I can’t recall a time, since that meeting, when he and his family haven’t been in my prayers. Praying for “Father Guy’s Mommy and Daddy” naturally became part of our home life and our prayers will only continue. Loving our priest means loving the people he holds in such high regard and we are so incredibly sorry for your loss.

Wishing you peace,
Sharon Montieth
