Belinda and family,

My heart goes out to you. Henri wasn't supposed to die in my mind but to carry on and create more and more solutions for our medical problems. I remember fondly working with him on the Boston Museum of Science corporate project. He was brilliant. And, he has been supportive of my career. You can count on me for support. Know he made a huge difference in my life, the world of life science, and Boston and the

I did not know Mr. Termeer personally, but I came to know him through Deborah Daw Heffernan's book "An Arrow Through the Heart". I admired him so much for what I read about him. I am so sorry to hear that he has passed away. After reading many of the comments on this site, I see that he was a hero to many, many people. Even though I never met him, I am proud to have shared the earth during the time that he was here. My prayers for all of you.

Dear Belinda, I was so sorry to hear about your loss. I just wanted you to know I thinking of you and your family during this difficult time. Psalm 147:3 says "He (God) heals the broken hearted and he binds up their wounds " I pray that the "God of all comfort" will help you to endure and bring you a measure of measure of peace.

Commercial Wharf will miss Henri. His service on the Board lead to one of the most aggressive and successful improvement and maintenance projects the Association has ever undertaken. His love of the harbor and his unit were unwavering even after building his beautiful home in Marblehead. I am thankful I was able to run into him in the parking lot shortly before his passing. Rest in peace, Henri.

Dear Belinda,

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this time of loss. It was so nice to have all the memories of Henri at the wake and the celebration of life services; he was such a force of good in this world. And so many came by to share even more thoughts of times past.
For you, I remember Henri coming to the IG 30th as your "plus one"; it was so good to catch up with you both there in and I will forever think of him dancing with you.
God bless,

Belinda and Family,

I worked with Henri at Baxter when we both lived in Los Angeles. That was over 35 years ago, when we were young. It was obvious to me that Henri had a bright future in the business world. His move to Genzyme was all he needed to realize his potential. I had dinner with Henri more than once at his home in Los Angeles. He was a gracious host and a kind and compassionate man.

While we
