For the first time that Miri Erez can remember, her husband did not call following the news of Monday's suicide bombing in Tel Aviv. Her husband Victor, 60, was the kind of man who immediately checked if she and their four adult children and five young grandchildren were safe. When she called Victor, no one answered. Then a relative called to say he had seen Victor's taxi in the area of the attack. "Then I knew," she said. When he left that morning from his home in Givatayim, a terror attack was the furthest thing from their minds. "He worried about the children, but not about himself," Miri told The Jerusalem Post. His world revolved around his children, he did everything for them, she said. Erez came to Israel at age two, with his family, from Libya. He and Miri were set up on a date and were married three years later in 1969. A disabled IDF veteran, he had worked as a taxi driver for 49 years. She last saw him that morning. They said goodbye without thinking about it, just as they had on every work-day morning throughout their marriage. His funeral is set for 11 a.m. at the Yarkon Cemetery.
