    Dear Henk,

    No words can truly express the pain and sorrow we all feel. You have contributed greatly to the success of the forum; there are few of us who have not had reason to use your research, and I, for one, will always be grateful.

    You will long be remembered, not only by forumites who have followed your work over the years, but also those outside our community who have - and will - benefit from your many posts. They are a worthy memorial.

    With great sadness

    Brian

    Dear Henk,

    So sorry to hear this news.

    We briefly corresponded back in 2008 and you were instrumental in locating the info I was after out of the Hans De Haan archive. I still owe you one for that.

    Thank you again and please keep up the fight.

    Dear Henk,

    Although not unexpected, it is very sad indeed to hear that you are about to bring the Welting research machine in on its final landing with you at the 'controls'. Like so many others on the forum I have benefited greatly from your work (much of which appears with due acknowledgement in the large amendments section of the third volume of my 'For Your Tomorrow' trilogy). I doubt if any other forumite has ever received over 4000 visits to his membership page, which in no small way indicates how greatly we will all miss you and your almost daily posts, and those unique and delightful touches of humour that sometimes graces them.

    My thoughts are with you as you set out on your last journey my friend.

    Henk,

    Having already expressed my sentiments privately, l don't have much more to say. There is a hackneyed saying that goes - "No one is irreplaceable" - l beg to differ.

    Proud to have been a Mate,

    Col.
