Several of our readers have contacted us asking for the date and circumstances of Henri Nouwen's death. In our desire to focus our coverage on Henri's life ("A Heart's Desire," November-December 1996), we left this vital information about his death out of our tribute. We apologize for this oversight.

Henri Nouwen died of a heart attack on September 21, 1996, in Hilversum, the Netherlands. He was 64 years old. His funeral and burial were held on September 28 at his home community, Daybreak L'Arche in Richmond Hill, Ontario.
