À la famille Croteau, ma communion fraternelle dans la foi en la résurrection de l’abbé Fernand. Je rends grâce à Dieu pour son service au Peuple de Dieu et pour sa persévérance avec son Dieu dans sa condition d’homme parmi nous. J’ai eu l’occasion d’en bénéficer. Dieu l’a accueilli avec miséricorde et tendresse. C’est ma prière et ma foi avec vous, dans la vie de l’Esprit du Dieu de Jésus Christ..
