Dozens of residents of Oranit, a small community near the seam line, rushed to the home of the Yunes family when official word came that the mother, Lily, was one of the victims killed in the bombing. It was supposed to be an auspicious day for the family. Lily, her husband Menachem, their sons Lidor, 24, and Tzach, 11, and Lidor's girlfriend, Elodie Zion, 26, went together to Tel Aviv's old central bus station to purchase equipment for a new business the family was about to establish. They decided to stop for a bite on the way, so Menachem dropped the four off near the shawarma stand and stayed in the car. Then came the blast, followed by frantic running between Ichilov, where his sons were hospitalized, and Wolfson, where Elodie was taken. Lily was nowhere to be found. In the evening, Menachem's brother-in-law, Elias Tzemach, went to Abu Kabir and identified the body. Lily, who ran a Na'amat day care center in Matan, is survived by two other children - Assaf and Bat El. (Anat Balint)
