Dear Belinda and Adriana, We are lucky to have had Henri as a friend and for me a mentor. His positive approach to life, his optimism, his determination, his keen intellect, and his obvious love for you are always to be remembered and a guiding star for all of us. We are all the poorer for losing him from our lives though the world is so much richer for his having being here. He will always live on in our brightest of memories. We are heartsick with you, love, Rich and Marianne

Belinda and family,

I am so sad and sorry for your loss. I am a Gaucher patient who benefited from Henri's vision, compassion and preservance. I was diagnosed back in 1990 and was amazed at how Henri and therefor Genzyme treated the patients. I met Henri many many times over the years. He made it his business to know me and my son. When we spoke he was always concerned how I was feeling, was Genzyme helping me with everything

To Henri's Family and Friends

Please accept my deepest deepest sympathies.

I was very fortunate to work with Henri, while I was Mayor of Cambridge. Henri made a difference in the many lives he touched, especially those who were the beneficiaries of the medical break throughs he developed.

You are in my thoughts and prayers

Dear Belinda, I posted a few minutes ago to you. Henri was a great friend and mentor and I know how very much he loved you. My husband Richard and I had so many fun times with him. Shock, and disbelief, can't begin to express our feelings. As I said in my post to you I am here for you and happy to come back to Massachusetts if you would like. I think of you often and I am heartbroken

Dear Belinda,
My deepest condolences to you and the Termeer family. Henri was a visionary with tremendous humility and brilliant leadership. He did so much for so many people in such a profound and graceful way. I will nerve forget his kindness and teachings. My heart and prayers are with you and your family.

Dear Belinda,

I was so deeply saddened to hear of Henri's passing. On behalf of all of us in the Northeastern community, please accept my heartfelt condolences. To say Henri was a wonderful man who did enormous good does not begin to hint at the impact he had on the lives of countless people around the world. I had such great admiration for his vision, and his compassion. It was my distinct privilege to work with him over the years.

Mr. Termeer was such a tremendous and giving man. He will be sorely missed but his work will live on. Myself and all of us at Voices of Hope will keep fighting in his memory to ensure his legacy continues.

Far too soon!! ...Henri was a dear friend and Business associate who I will dearly miss... we worked together during our mutual tenures at Baxter and maintained our contact as we both emerged into the world of Biotechnology... his kindness and generosity to me and my family were truly gracious ...

Rest in Peace, my Friend, you left your mark deeply embedded in this World and it is Truly a Better Place because of YOU !!! ...

Godspeed !!...
