Avner is unforgettable. Every time I saw him, he drew
my attention. I had a lot of fun times with him and his
family and I want to tell Roy, Noa, Ofri and Ayelet that I
am incredibly sorry and if there is anything I can do to
help just let me know. Roy, Noa and I will definitely have
a trampoline party soon! And we can eat some more amazing
guacamole with Ayelet.

Avner is a daredevil and a real go-getter. Always up for a
new climbing trip or marathon. He died doing something he

Lots of love, Cole Zemel
