I will always see Edith and Gerald sitting in the same pew every Sunday, both dressed up for Jesus. Both were always happy and cordial to all.
Edith and I worked together in the Sodality. And her husband and mine worked together in the Holy Name Society. We were all founding members of St. Thomas, and felt like family.
I will miss our phone conversations. She was such an inspiration.

Mrs Guillot was the absolute best! As a child I would sit behind her and Mr Guillot in church! She always would talk to me after church and I would stop in every now and then when I would walk the neighborhood on my way to the Peterson home! She was a gem and she will be missed!
