Dear Betty,
I'm so sorry to hear of Henk's passing. I will always remember his kindness and his beautiful singing voice at the hymn sings at the Avalon on Wednesday mornings. He was a wonderful man whom I had great respect for.
Hazel Keating.

Oh my gosh, Betty. I am so sorry, Henk was such a wonderful friend for so many. He will be missed so much by so many including me.
I am so thankful for sharing in the hymn singing on Wednesdays.
Henk had such a great leader's voice. I will miss him so much and Betty, I feel the pain in your heart.
He will be at peace with the Lord and for that I am happy for him but selfishly, I am truly sorry that I won't see him when I get home.
Love and Peace to the family,
God Bless,
