I was so sorry to hear of your loss. Although I never met
Avner, I can see from the many tributes on this site that he
lived a life marked not only by accomplishments, but by joy
and love for those around him. I know that you shared these
values with him.

It is true what they say, that "no one is really gone if we
find a way to remember them." I believe that in time, you
and your family will exemplify this statement by living your
lives to the fullest, as Avner did. My thoughts and prayers
are with you at this difficult time.
