May Nard's soul rest in peace. He fought the good fight.

May his family and all who mourn him be comforted.

He cast a long shadow in this small community.

He will be sadly missed, but fondly remembered.

May he rest in peace.

I took the liberty of posting a few memories of Nard:

Rest in Peace, Nard!

We hardly knew each other, but few years ago Nard has helped me with developing multilingual Ray Bradbury fan site, he spent a lot of time working on it. My gratitude and sympathy for his works and music are very high. I'm sorry for this man to pass so early.

My condolences to all of his friends here and family.

It occurred to me that, because of his health, Nard hadn't been present on these boards for many months - and therefore some of the board members may not know who Nard was and why he "cast a long shadow" here.

So I found Nard's first post on the board, from 2002, which characteristically talks about his religious journey in relation to Bradbury's: it's here.

(I should add a disclaimer: years ago these boards were driven by different software, and I suspect some of the earliest posts got lost when the new software came in. So this may not be Nard's ACTUAL first post, it's just the first one we have. The software change, incidentally, is why to this day this page is headed by a link to "Imported Forums": the threads carried over from the old system.)

Over 5000 posts later - the count is inaccurate, again because of the software change - Nard made his last post in March of this year. Although he had undergone considerable physical trauma, he was still eager to communicate his experience. It's here.

I had some emails from Nard after this date, and his typing did actually improve, although I gather it was a struggle for him.

Damn it! I'm depressed beyond reason. I will not be on here until who knows when. I deny Nard's death! He was a huge inspiration for me...and then he went and...DAMN IT!


"Oh, death!"

True, philnic, a number of posts were lost in two different procedures (creating this present new board and then merging it with what remained of the old board after it continued on a separate track for about a year) as well as some which may have been lost due to other glitches. Nard was very concerned about all this with good reason.

I only just read this news.
(I have been off the computer for most of the last month or so.)

I never met Nard in person, but I loved him.

Memory Eternal!

I attended a memorial for Nard today at the home of one of his friends. I will post some pictures soon. A very moving tribute to a unique man.
