Hadas Magen

I was so excited to read what all of you wrote. I always
knew that my brother was special. Probably I didn't know how
really special he was. One of my cousins, the age of
Avner, said yesterday that he doesn't know any other guy
that lives a full life like Avner did -- any minute and every
minute of his life. The loss is huge, but it comforts a bit
to know that he had a full life.

By the name of my parents, our two brothers, and me, we
thank you all.

Hadas, Avner's sister
