Limor, Yonatan’s widow, published a wrenching post in which she describes the two years without her beloved husband.

“The 5th of Iyar

The worst day of all, today is two years since your death

Two years of pain, two years of fierce longing, two years where your absence was so felt.

Two years of coping with a new and strange reality, “adapting” they tell me.

Two years of learning afresh, learning to walk like a baby does and live without you.

Two years where I have been forced to live and learn through the pain, since time doesn’t heal the pain it just makes the knowledge more certain. We tried so hard to deny that you were not amongst the living.

I pray with all my heart that G-d willing we will be reunited and receive the Mashiach with joy and faith, we will merit the revival of the dead and the full redemption very soon.

There isn’t a day when I don’t think about you, there isn’t a day when I don’t talk to you, there isn’t a day when I don’t miss you….you will always be engraved in my heart and soul.

We love you forever and faithfully hope to be reunited with you soon. Rest in peace , beloved one. May G-d avenge your pure and holy blood, Yonatan Habakuk z’l ”

Yonatan z’l, who was 44 at his death, fought with his attackers, thus delaying them and preventing them from continuing their murderous spree, saving the lives of many people in his heroic death.
