Yitzchk Kolangi (Itzik) of Petach Tikva, 28, who was murdered in Burgas by terrorists, was laid to rest Friday at Segula Cemetery in Petach Tikva. His brother eulogized him, saying: "Thank you for being my brother – you are my brother forever."

"I will never forget you. I promise you that the family and I will guard over your wife, Gilat, and your daughter, Noya, who resembles you. My dear brither, watch over us from above."

Gilat, Itzik's wife, is hospitalized and could not attend the funeral because of her condition.
