To the Pedersen family --
I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of you loved one, Bernard. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers during this sad time. Bernard was my supervisor at the US Army Corps of Engineers for a short time. I remember him for his good humor and, most notably, his faith.
Karl, Brian, RuthAnn and Ellen,
My most sincere condolences at your fathers passing. He was an amazing man. Always joking and laughing! He had such a great laugh, I always loved visiting w/him back in high school when we'd watch movies in the basement. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I now your father has gone home and hope that gives you some comfort.
So sorry to hear about your loss. My condolences. He was a good man.
Karl and Family,
I was (and still am) deeply saddened to hear about Deacon's passing. I truly enjoyed working with him at Saint Agnes. He answered many random and sometimes off the wall questions for me and helped me really grow in my faith. For that I will be forever grateful to him. He was an amazing man of God and will be truly missed here on Earth. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Karl, and your entire family.
To Bernard's Family -
I pray for your family at this time. I worked under Bernard for a few years at the US Army Corps of Engineers. He was always enjoyable to be around and he gave me strength in my position while working for the government.
RIP Rev. Pedersen and GOD BLESS you!
You have our prayers, sympathy and support. Bernie was a great friend to me personally and a good mentor.
May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace -- the LaForce family.
Dear Pedersen family - Dick and I remember with fondness this kind and reverent soul. What a blessing to know this saintly man. When we left St. Agnes after the CMAA Conference, he assured us he was "ok", and now after all that suffering, everything IS okay..you now can join Monsignor in the Heavenly Choir. Oremus !
Thank you for helping me on my Journey.
Dear Karl & Family---
I was saddened to hear about the lost of your father. He was a great man; one with strong integrity and a deep, committed faith. I learned quite a bit from his example, and although he may not be here on earth anymore, his spirit will be present in many people's lives moving forward.
God Bless and Best Wishes!
"Well done, good and faithful servant..enter thou into the joy of thy Lord" (Mt 25:21). My heartfelt prayers and deepest sympathy are with you this day. Bernard and I shared the friendship of laughter and gifted one another with open hearts and many a confidence. I mourn his passing and pray for your comfort in the days to follow.
Wished that Mason and I were home with you Judy, RuthAnne, Ellen, Karl and Bryan. I remember when we were kids and when you visited us a Grandma and Grandpa Hopkins place and all of the fun we had growing up I will miss you Bernie and wished that you would have had the chance to meet my fiancé but you are now looking down on me and my fiancé and knowing that you would have given me your blessing for my new life means more to me I love and Miss you. My love to the rest of the family Love you all Mary and Mason hope to see you soon Judy when I come home.
Dear family of Bernard, my prayers are with you at this time. May your memories give you comfort and peace.
Sincerely, Noreen Moore

The night shift we all worked at the U of MN Hospital will always be a very special memory.
B was a very special man and friend.
His legacy will be all the lives of so many of us who he touched during his short time with us.
B you will always be missed.
B you will always be loved.
B you will always be with us.
Dear Pedersen Family:
I am so sorry to hear of the death of your Dad. I enjoyed his company in the Church Hall after the 10:00 a.m. High Mass when he sat with us. He was an excellent teacher. His presence at St. Agnes will be missed, but his impact will remain.
May God Bless you.
I was saddened to hear of the death of Bernie. As a colleague of mine, he was always available to share ideas and to brighten my day; as a teacher to my children, he was knowledgable and compassionate; as a friend, he was funny and giving. He was a wonderful man who taught me the much appreciated lesson that one can be a strong Christian and still have a beautiful and unique sense of humor. :-) I will miss him tremendously. After your hard fought-battle, Deacon, rest in the loving embrace of our Lord. I look forward to someday reuniting and picking up right where we left off, with jokes, smiles, and you telling me little-known facts about Church history. Pedersen family, may you feel God's presence especially over these difficult days, and know that I am thinking of you and praying for all of you.
The Carle Family
Please know that you, Ruthanne, Fr. Brian, Carl, Ellen, and family are in our thoughts as we pray for the repose of God's good and faithful servant, Bernard Pedersen. We will miss him and remember him fondly. With deep sympathy, Gordon, Lilie, Ulysses, Lance and Olivia-Rose
