Condolence from Kevin & Pam Bergeron on August 28th, 2014 8:54 am

Mike, Cody, Emily, Monique and the entire Picard Family,

Words are very inadequate to express the pain we are feeling today. We pray to God to give you all courage to overcome this grief. Speaking from experience it does take time and it hurts so bad, but I will say that it’s the little things, the small, everyday occurrences that you’ll remember. The laughs, the stories, the smiles. And even though it seems like you can never recover from your loss, it is these very memories that will help push the pain away and bring back the smiles. To all who knew him, new he was a pleasant, caring, considerate and loving young man who would do anything to help everyone. He will be greatly missed by all. Heaven gained a great angel. God bless you all and know our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Lots of love, Kevin & Pam Bergeron

Michael, Cody, Aunty Ann, Monique, Susie and Emily,
I am so so sorry to hear about the sudden loss of Dane. He was one of the most generous, caring, loving, young man I have ever met. His smile was contagious. His laugh was loving. He was such a great influence for my two grandchildren, who looked up to their older cousin. I send you my love with my deepest sympathy for all of you and his friends and extended family. He is now with the angels looking over all of us.
Love you all, Linda xoxo

Condolence from Wendy Fusco on August 29th, 2014 7:25 pm

I am so so saddened by the terrible news of Dane’s death. I am truly sorry for your loss. I remember Dane as a nice, honest respectful young man. He never gave me any problems as my student. I remember having a nice talk with Dane once after he had graduated from Tourtellotte. He had grown into a nice, self-assured, man who enjoyed being active in serving his community. He was a humble man, and someone to be able to trust. He has touched so many lives at such a young age. All of you who were part of his growing up should be proud, for I know he gleaned much from his loving and supportive family and friends, and he always spoke highly of you. May you take some comfort in knowing this. My deepest condolences, Wendy Fusco

Condolence from Laurence Prentiss on August 30th, 2014 8:37 am

Please accept my most sincere condolences Mr. and Mrs. Picard and Cody. To say that I was deeply saddened, as I know many were, at the loss of your son is an understatement. I recall numerous conversations with Dane during his time in the Thompson Public Schools. An extremely kind young man that aspired to becoming a state trooper, I recall. Dane was highly respected by his peers as well as his teachers and was regarded as a decent, well thought of and pleasant young man with endless potential. Again, know that you have my deepest heartfelt sympathy at this difficult time.

Laurence Prentiss

Condolence from Shirley Smith on August 30th, 2014 10:16 am

May you find strength in the days ahead knowing Dane had touched so many lives in his short 23 years on earth. May you find peace that he’s watching over you all and heaven gained a wonderful Angel. Thoughts and prayers go out to all his friends, co-workers and family, that you will soon remember the good times and the pain you are feeling will subside over time. God Bless Dane, my you rest in peace. Until we meet again.

Condolence from Bob Noone on August 30th, 2014 11:36 am

The Picard Family I didn’t know your son, but my heart goes out to you as a parent. My girls knew him and what i have read about him today you must have been so proud. I just felt the need to write something to you today after reading about your son. God Bless Bob Noone

We want to send love and prayers to you, your parents, your grandparents and all of Dane’s many friends who loved him.

May his Memory be Eternal.

Love, Dawn and Dennis

Although we only moved next door a few years ago it feels like we have known Dane for many years. That was the kind of spirit he carried with him.

To the Picard family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Dane was a kind and generous young man. At Tourtellotte, he was a very positive influence to all who knew him, and he never stopped working towards his goals. I recall numerous conversations about his future and how he wanted to help people, whether it was through the Coast Guard, volunteering, or becoming a trooper. It’s who he was. Please accept my deepest condolences on your loss.
