  1. My sincere sympathy to the Peter’s family. Marilou was such an amazing person. I got to know her as a memeber of St. Thomas Church. She assisted me so much with the religious ed program as a young mother. Her presence will be truely missed. May her soul rest in peace always.

  • I haven’t spoken to Marilou since she left St Thomas Religious Formation program, but I would always think of her and her bubbly personality as I passed her house. God Bless you Marilou and thank you for all you did for the children of St. Thomas.

  • Randy, I just heard about Marilou tonight. It’s been probably close to 14 years since the last time I saw either of you, but my heart is sad to hear about her passing. I am so sorry for your loss. She was such a warm-hearted, happy, beautiful woman, that always had a smile on her face. Remember when you and she started dating at just about the same as Tom and I…22 years ago if I’m correct. Those were the days, huh…a lifetime ago. Remember the good times…keep them close to your heart…and may God watch over you and your family during this difficult time in your life. May she rest in peace. My deepest sympathy to all of you. Your friends from the good old UST days, Diane and Tom Slosser.
