Many of you I know in person since I met Henry 10 years ago and others from
following the mailing lists - from the shadows of motherhood, trying to stay on
the ball as the discussions extended to every little bit of our daily life, from
the breakfast table to the glass of wine infront of the fire place. You have
been both Henry’s office, constructive discussion platform, playground,
entertainment as well as extended family. 

Henry and I had the luck that it wasn’t just our 3 beautiful children that life
was worth living for, but also the hope and determination to make this Web a
better place. Henry’s mosaic of brilliance is now in front of me, scattered and
structured in piles of category-theoretical arrows and semantic relations. My
great hope and wish, but also what I owe my partner in life and business, is
that we will be able to jointly pick up the pieces and re-construct the Web
we’ve al be wanting. 

I’ve talked to Sarven and I will be joining one of the upcoming Solid Calls
after the funeral next Friday (15th, September in Garmisch-Partenkirchen). 

If it wasn’t for all of you, Henry would have never had this unique exchange
that led him to all his “funny” ideas. 

So much for now.

With a broken heart filled with love,
