Vale member Boris

Members who are familiar with the postings of member Boris will be saddened to hear of his death in late May.

The unexpected news was disclosed by the Admin of the Royal Jewels of the World Message Board - refer link.

Boris was a very knowledgeable member who was very helpful and generous in providing information,
especially when relating to his two favourite subjects, the Royal Family of Sweden and royal jewels.
Unsurprisingly Boris had an extensive and detailed knowledge of past and current Bernadotte gems
and was always happy to initiate discussions with new information and to otherwise participate in the forums,
give his opinions and share his knowledge.

Regular readers and posters in the Swedish and Royal Jewels forums will know first-hand of the many interesting
and valuable contributions made by Boris since he joined the Forums back in late 2004.

The death of Boris is a great loss to the small but electronically-connected internet royal world.
His presence here at The Royal Forums and at the GREMB and RJOTWMB will be greatly missed.

Vale Boris.

This is sad news. I recall his great expertise in the area of royal gems. I'll miss him here, but hopefully his posts will live on.

Oh how unexpected and sad. Boris was always helpful with information on the Swedish royals. I remember him by his avatar and his knowledge of history.

So sorry to hear of his passing. He will be missed here on the Forums.

Oh that's really sad to hear :sad: I always loved Boris' intelligent posts. I missed him the last months, now I know why he wasn't posting... I hope he had a long and fulfilled life. May he rest in peace!

This is very sad news ... I already thought the other day why Boris isnt posting anymore. I always loved his contribution to the fashion threads. May he rest in peace!

I was very sad indeed to hear this news and feel that many people will miss him very much.
How poignant it is that the internet world, where in reality we are strangers, can sometimes crosses over to the real world at times like this: we suddenly feel a loss of a friend or acquaintance whom we have never met.
I do hope that Boris's posts will continue to be read well into the future, so that much information and knowledge can be gleaned by new members as well as old.

Thank you Boris! I will continue reading your posts I believe there are treasures unsolved, where you have left hints for solving jewelry mysteries.

He had a keen eye for fashion. I always enjoyed his comments in the fashion threads.
