Dear Roy and the Magen family,

I am very sorry to hear about your loss, and although i
never had the pleasure of meeting Avner, I know that he must
have been a very wonderful man.

I would like to offer my sincerest condolences and want you
to know that I am thinking of you, as are all of your
friends in class 8-8.

Roy we are missing you at school, and I want you to know
that you and your family are in our hearts.

My deepest condolences, Rebecca D.
