Goodbye my friends in art..................Au revoir

Dear friends in art,
Bernard passed away this morning at 8 am.
His friend Patrick and I uploaded a photo for goodbye.
He loved to be part of Redbubble and the communication with you helped him through a very hard year. Thank you to you all. Please go on his portfolio to see it.
Love and peace

    bernard lacoque..I’m so sad that he’s gone
    I was absolutely devastated to hear that bernard lacoque died
    I woke up to this terrible news this morning..and I just feel so sad about it ..I’m sitting here crying…devastated!
    he was such a pleasant and kind person and really had such a caring attitude to everyone he met in here he commented on a lot of my I did with his.
    he had a childlike innocence..and this showed in his lovely lovely paintings..he just seemed like a beautiful person all round!!

    you’ll be missed bernard..I’ll miss you heaps..I never met you in person ..but I met your beautiful heart and red bubble won’t be quite the same without you .
    so glad to have met you dear man…I’ve never felt so sad about the death of someone that I never met before.. ..yet I felt that I knew him through his art.

    He never told me that he was sick it’s a real shock to me.
    I’ll never forget your kindness bernard.

    regards from cathy walker

    Dear Ruth…. I am so saddened to hear your news. I have only just discovered Bernard’s art and added him to my watchlist eager to see more of his work…. I had no idea he was ill. It seems from the comments above and the feel which comes through his work that he was not only a gifted artist but a beautiful human being too. The most beautiful thing is that he has touched so many people and will live on in their hearts and memories. Please accept my condolences to you and all who were close to him… you will be in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Kind regards…. Jenny xxx
