|I never had Mr. Perrealt as a teacher but worked with him at Notre Dame Parish. From the youth group specifically. Sorry for the loss. My brother visited him several times during the year |

|Mr. Perrault was engaging with students like few others. He was a great listener and seemed to know nearly every student in my graduating class whether or not he was their teacher (he was not a teacher of mine). He was a rare breed indeed. Sail on Mr. Perrault.|

|Missoire Perreault was one of my favorite teachers at Drury. I recall his great efforts to teach me french but I was a rebellious teenager and did not appreciate the gift he was to Drury. God bless.|
