I have had many great times with Avner and his kids,
especially his kids and his wonderful wife Ayelet who has
always been so nice to me. I feel like I must do something
back to her and her family. I cannot explain with words how
sad I am that Avner and Andrew have passed away. Avner was
always so lively and active and energetic. I felt like he
was one of my great friends because he acted just like a
kid, always wanting to be outside running around and having
fun. I just wanted to share my great times I have had with
Avner and I wish more than anything that he is treated well
wherever he has gone to. Thank you.
