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,

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

My late son Steve Morgan was married to a Genzyme employee. When Steve died unexpectedly of a heart attack at age 34 leaving his wife Michelle, three children and a small business, Mr. Termeer kindly took the time to come to Milford to attend the calling hours. We were so appreciative of the generosity of time and effort that Mr. Termeer gave to all of us, family, co-workers, neighbors, friends, classmates and all who knew and loved Steve. Thank you

I hardly knew YOU Henri, but the YOU I knew was a kind, gentle, and caring man. Your passing leaves the world of medical research a tall order to continue your work, but your legacy will carry on for decades. Your 71 years were well spent, rest in peace.

There are simply no words that can adequately convey our deep and abiding sorrow for your loss, and frankly for all those who
knew Henri. His passion for those in need and for the promise of humankind's tomorrow-in the arts, political leadership, and the beautification of the world leave such an overwhelming void. However, in Belinda, Nicholas, Sophie, and Adriana, Henri leaves a profound legacy and one that will not diminish his ambitious and hopeful agenda. We pray that they
