Crossing the Threshold


It is with incredibly deep sadness that we share with you that Bernadette was taken home to be with all her siblings and her heavenly family this afternoon at 3:35pm, surrounded by her earthly family.  Her passing was quick but peaceful.

We just wanted to thank you all for all your love and support over the last three months as we walked this difficult journey.  We knew we were never alone because we knew you were all there with us, praying for us, and loving us.   We are eternally grateful.

Patti, Marc, & family, our hearts go out to you & no words can express how sad we are for all of you. Bernadette is finally free from pain & probably dancing with Jesus in Heaven!! Oh the joy when we all meet up with our loved ones! God bless you all and accept our deepest condolences. Love & prayers.

Words cannot express the agony you are going through. Bernadette is at peace in the arms of Jesus. No more pain, no more itching, no more sickness. Yet we’re left here to ache that she’s not in our arms, not where we can physically touch her. The mix of emotions of relief for her little body to no longer suffer, sadness for our loss, joy that she’s dancing and playing with Jesus. Know that God will hold you and love you throughout. Enjoy the memories of this beautiful little girl you had the wonderful opportunity to have in your life for as long as you did.
Prayers and love to the entire Dansereau family!!

Indeed, deep deep sadness…
I feel at a loss for words in the face of this sadness.
I hear echoing inside me the traditional prayer:
“Eternal rest grant unto Bernadette, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.”
“May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace.”
And for all of you I continue to pray for comfort and for peace.

Fr. David

We are so sad to see her go. Bernadette was a little treasure that God put in your custody. You never knew for how long when you were granted such a privilege but every minute with her counted. You gave and received Love.

Our prayers are with you.

I know “The Songs of the Angels” welcomed her this afternoon and yet my mother’s heart is aching this night. Thank you for your love and generosity in letting us share a small part of this difficult heart breaking journey. Your faith, strength and courage have left me humbled. My prayers continue along with my tears.
