It is hard to be a bereaved parent. It is a mission contrary to the laws of nature.

To bury a son when you, the parent, are still alive, is a terrible reality.  Parents, therefore, usually look for a way to keep their son’s memory alive.

We looked for a way to commemorate Yuval who was an athlete.  Yuval loved basketball, football, tennis, table-tennis and everything connected.

The most suitable way we found was to set up a gym in Yuval’s navy unit, which will bear his name. In the summer of 2002 this gym will be completed and inaugurated in the name of our beloved Yuval.

I want to take this opportunity to thank the “Ofer Brothers” company, without whose contribution it would have been difficult to construct the gym.
