  Dear Orna,

I was shocked and angered to learn of the horrific and barbaric event which took the life of Yanay Weiss.

I looked at the e-memorial you produced for Yanay and enjoyed listening to Summer 97. Yanay was a talented guitarist who loved to play; skill, humanity and enjoyment are apparent in every phrase.

One has the feeling that this love, and the love he so clearly shared with his family and friends, will somehow live on to play a part in something healing and constructive in the future. With this in mind, may I take this opportunity to wish you and all the others well with your legal campaign for justice.
