Abstract: For the occasion of the official retirement of Henny Lamers, a meeting was held to celebrate Henny’s contribution to mass loss from stars and stellar clusters. Stellar mass loss is crucial for understanding the life and death of massive stars, as well as their environments. Henny has made important contributions to many aspects of our understanding of hot-star winds. Here, the most dominant aspects of the stellar part of the meeting: (i) O star wind clumping, (ii) mass loss near the Eddington limit, and (iii) the driving of Wolf- Rayet winds, are highlighted.
