As I have been living out of country for several years and fallen out of any loops...just today, I learned of Henri's passing.
So many feelings all at once...shock, deep sorrow, regret for loosing touch and profound gratitude for the most incredible experience, privilege and honor for having met, served and been influenced by such an individual as Henri.
Both he...and you and each person in your families touched and left a changing elemental mark on my

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.
