Henk immigrated his family to Sweden in 1995 and then to the USA in 1999 to give his sons the best opportunities possible. Relte and Servaas are truly grateful for the experiences that Henk made possible. Through the years Henk changed lives of many through his mentoring and tutoring, providing valuable lessons on how to tackle problems and never to give up.
