Subject: I met Dori....

 

I met Dori in 2001, im not sure now where i met him. Perhaps it was on Napster, the music sharing site. You could chat there with people who downloaded your music then and i met a lot of people from far away places that way.

 

I remember Dori as being much younger than i was but we still enjoyed talking to each other. I was going through a divorce right about then and he was a friend to me. I remember him as being very nice and i just wanted to say it again. I responded to the website when you ( his family) sent it to me when he passed away. I was just going through my old emails and came across Dori's website. He sure was a fine looking man with a good heart. He will be missed by so many like you said.

 

Greetings from Missouri, USA.

Shalom!

I found the memorial site for Dori and wanted to convey my sympathies to his family.

The writings are very touching and offer a very vivid description of what a wonderful man he was and the tragedy of a special life cut way too short. I, too, was in the Artillery Corps of the IDF (1978-1981) and I, too, am a certified scuba diver.

I can only imagine the grief associated with losing a son in such circumstances.

I wish you all the best.
Yaron

Dori my dear son,
4.5 years has passed but you are with us every minute. there is no justice ! only interests !
we shall not rest and we will fight against those who want to bury you twice: once when they killed you and second when they deny justice from you.
thank you for being such a wonderful son to us

Our dearest Dori.

You are with us every minute - living in our hearts.

3.5 years passed and yet no decision of the attorney's office to prosecute the people who killed you.

best regards,all the best to you!

Amir Zucker (Dori's friend), 28/09/03:

i was just thinking of dori again....
his picture is infront of me now,like all days...
last night i had another experience like i shared with you before...
when i saw the "write us about dori" in the site this time i got in , i thought that it is like saying "what have you heard of him lately"....my answer for that is "if i only knew....but the only thing i can tell is that i believe he is around ....doing his best to stay around.....

 

 

shalom maman, 02/01/03:

This is important site . As a diver who make his diving course in thailand, and as dori's age i know it could be me also.

 

 

Tsvika, 05/12/02:

Avi Kayton, 03/12/02:

so very sorry 4 your lost.
as a diver myself i understand the targedy of that accident.

 

 

Eyal Maoz Hong kong, 29/10/02:

Looks like a fantastic guy.. it's very sad to hear about his death. As a diver myself I know the risks involved but somehow the knowledge remains on the surface and seldom sinks in. Of all the poeple I know which dive no one ever thinks it can happen to him/her.
mishtatef be zaarchem..

I AM SORRY WITH YOUR LOSS MY HART IS WITH YOU ,AND AS A STARTING DIVER I WILL PUT MORE ATTENTION ON THE GEAR AND THE PARTNER OF DIVING.

A very moving site about a very moving person. I will send the URL to my son who is also a diver.
Thank you.

 

 

Shuki USA, 04/04/2002:

Saw the article in iDive and wanted to learn more about your beloved son and brother.
A diver myself, I can't help but feel for your loss and frustrution with the atitude you receive with regards to the investigation of Dori's death.
I hope, much like you, that his death was not in vain and that it will serve as a lesson to immature divers.
Please stay strong for him, and yourselves,
Shuki

Nissim (Dori's friend) 25/02/02:

I have never written to you before I guess its because I never fully grasped that I really lost the one and only true friend I have ever had....
Now when the truth slowly precipitates I can still hear your laughter through the haze of time....
On the 25.02.01 I wanted to call and just talk.... I hesitated and I didnt ... Why??? is the question which will haunt me for the rest of my days...
You know every one is afraid of Death but not me no, no more because I have someone to meet across the river on the banks of eternity....
I will see you again my man and if I dont see you on this world I ll meet you on the next one but I might be a bit late....
Friendship never dies you know only we do...

Pini Harush our friend from the diving forum 05/02/02:

It's been a long time since I got acquainted with this case and I keep thinking about Dori and the huge unnecessary loss.
No, I haven't known Dori and from my impression (which is quite strong and clear) it's obvious that Dori was unusual kind of man, that combined within him horizons, ideas, dreams and many uncommon talents.
I have met Ami and Ahuva, and I understood that of this couple that raised and groomed him, only extraordinary flower could have developed.
Upsetting is the fact that the world keeps going on and Dori, without blame, became part of statistics of names and numbers, no more!
It seems that, at least for now, nobody of authority wants and is interested to change anything.
It's clear that personal failure of despicable personnel (the instructors that qualified Dori and led him towards his last dive) and colossal system failure of the entire diving branch in Israel occurred.
I hope that something or someone will wakeup and shout against the notorious Israeli "count on." Culture and will establish new and correct methods and procedures so that such unnecessary accidents will be avoided in future.
Maybe this will bring some consolation to Ahuva and Ami.
Ahuva and Ami, your loss is unbearable. Be strong.
Pini

I just heard about this terrible accident, visited in Dori's site. it's hard to believe. a beginer diver goes into a approved club, fails in a pre-dive, taken to a guided dive and deserted by the guide. what did the guide thought of... What a loss.

 

 

Ariel drori 07/12/01:

The only thing i can say that my heart is with you.

 

 

Shimon Siboni (Dori's friend) 01/12/01:

Karen Cheirif Mexico city 03/11/2001:

First of all I want to say I was really shocked by this terrible news I had no idea of this, since I never kept contact later with Dori. I met him last year in Cesky Krumlov, a small town in Czek Republic, I heard him speak hebrew so we spoke because I spent some time in Israel and Im jewish, we were togueter for the evening with some other people we met there, went out to dinner and talk... I had a very good impression of all the things I read in the history you wrote about him, even though I didnt meet him for so long, I could notice what a great and smart and conscious person he was...and i am really sorry. I just wanted to say this to you because I remembered him so much from that place, when he was a few days from going back to aretz after his long journey.
Its a great thing you have this page in his memory. Thank you.
sincerely
Karen Cheirif, Mexico city

Repp (Dori's friend from USA) 21/10/2001:

it is a moving and appropriate testament to your wonderful son.
His ability to grasp the "big picture" and understand things was just incredible. He also had a way of telling a story that grabbed my full attention . I really respected his brains and his whole person. When I think of some of the experiences we had together I smile and remember fondly. I will miss him.
The way he talked of you and your family was beautiful.
It truly is a loss to humanity. I would not have been surprised to have one day seen him on the world stage.

This guestbook will help us to keep your memory in our hearts.
