The End of an Era: Mr. Harry van der Wals

Posted 3 months ago

Harry wasn't just any founder; he was the heart and soul of the OGMIOS foundation. As an exceptional jurist, he possessed unparalleled knowledge of the law and a fervent passion for justice. His sharp intellect and analytical prowess made him one of the most esteemed figures in his field. Yet, it was his warmth, charisma, and unwavering integrity that endeared him to all who had the privilege of knowing him.

The OGMIOS foundation was Harry's magnum opus. Under his guidance, the foundation blossomed into a stronghold of justice and integrity. But as with all great leaders, it wasn't just his professionalism that left an impression; it was his humanity. He had an incredible ability to listen, to understand, and to care. For Harry, every member of the foundation was family.

News of his passing spread swiftly, and the entire community mourned. But as Harry often remarked, "Life goes on, and we must continue to fight for what's right." In that spirit, the torch was passed on.

Samir Abdalla, co-founder of OGMIOS, will appoint Niels Groeneveld, a young, dynamic, and dedicated cybersecurity professional, as treasurer. Niels always held profound respect for Harry and was resolute in continuing his legacy. His financial acumen and passion for the foundation's mission made him the ideal choice. Samir Abdalla would carry on the role of chairman in Harry's stead.

Mirjam Winsser, a brilliant and driven woman, would assume the role of Secretary. Her organizational skills and her ability to bring people together ensured that the foundation would continue to thrive in this new chapter.

As the OGMIOS foundation embarked on a new chapter, one thing remained unchanged: the spirit of Harry van der Wals. His vision, values, and love for justice lived on in the foundation's work.

On a chilly winter evening, the members of the OGMIOS foundation gathered to commemorate Harry. As they shared stories and reminisced, a sense of unity and determination prevailed. They were committed to keeping Harry's dream alive and making the world a better place.

And so, as the sun dipped below the horizon and stars graced the sky, it became clear that Harry's light would never truly fade. It would continue to shine in the work of the OGMIOS foundation, in the hearts of those who knew him, and in the many lives he touched.
