When I received this news I simply couldn't believe it. I
couldn't believe that our beloved teacher has suddenly gone.
To me Avner was a devoted teacher, a very respectful yet
humble professor. He had influenced us with his brilliant
thoughts and his passion about those intriguing problems. I
sincerely appreciate all he had taught me, as many other
students do. We feel awful about our loss of him. May his
memory be a blessing.
