Henrik S.

Born on February 24, 2017, Henrik passed away on March 10, 2017, after struggling against Trisomy 18. He is survived by his parents Kate and Clayton, and by six older siblings: Maddy, Helena, Zane, Lila, Fiona, and Hawken.

“I think the most amazing aspect of Henrik’s personality was his awareness,” his parents recall. “He was alert and vibrant from the first moment until his death. He truly seemed to be a wise old soul inside his tiny little body.”

Henrik had a particularly noticeable affinity for music. “We brought instruments to his room and would sing and play for him for many hours. His reactions to music and his family’s voices were a joy to see.”
