President Reuven Rivlin this morning (Sunday) paid a condolence visit to the family of Maj. Ohad Cohen Nov who was killed when his F16 crashed last week at the Rimon Air Base.

 

Ohad’s parents Doron and Chaya spoke with the President about their son, about his joy for life and respect for all, and about his love for flying. “My son loved everyone, he was a joyful boy,” Chaya told the President.

 

President Rivlin responded, “I read and heard so much about Ohad, and on these things alone it is clear what a great loss he is for his family, for his unit, and for all the Israeli people.”

 

He added, “Your pain is infinite, and no words can bring comfort at this terrible time. All that I can do is come and be with you, together with you in your pain.”

 

The President spoke with Ohad’s widow Shachar, and heard from her about the plans they had had for the future as a young family setting out. He wished her that she should have the strength to continue looking forward for their daughter and all the family.
