Thierry Bernard has been found dead in his appartment by firemen. He probably died last Friday. I saw him during our last sword meeting on the 11th, he was a very good friend.

A shock. A very nice guy collecting tsuba with humility and taste.

I had not met Thierry but I will miss his voice here. My condolences to all who new him.

I'm devastated to hear this very sad news and I assume someone will let us know what happened
I'd like to send a card of condolence
Although we never met I have bought many tsuba from Thierry and he was always very helpful

I am devastated. Thierry was one of the very, very good guys. Has been a member, friend and supporter since almost the beginning here. This is terrible news.
A true collector and nice guy. Jean, according to his profile, he was only about 52? Or was that incorrect?
This is very sad. A great loss to the whole community.
Jean, will you let the investigators know that the logs show he was active online here on Saturday at 8:30. So whatever happened, happened after that.
Very sorry to hear this. RIP Mon Ami.
I am moving this out of members-only so that others will see it.

Very very sorry to hear this. I only had contact with him on a few occasions, however he was a true gentleman and always went out of his way to help or get info - he will be dearly missed on NMB.

Very sad news indeed - I will miss his contributions ...

I learned this sad new this morning with an email from Jean. Like him I am still under the shock.
That was very unexpected, I saw 2 week ago during our last sword meeting.
I always take pleasure to discuss with Thierry. He was very nice and kind guy with a strong kwnowledge on tsuba.
A big loss for Nihonto world....

"Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone.
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come."
On an early morning with it dark outside and still 2 hours to sunrise, I am surprised and sad to read this news.
Learning that Thierry is suddenly gone, the silence and darkness of this hour weight heavy.

That is a terrible shock. In our few private conversations, Thierry was a consummate gentleman, kind and helpful. He will be greatly missed.
My thoughts go out to his family and close friends; I can't imagine how they're dealing with such unexpected news.
