Both sons of former prime minister Ariel Sharon, Omri and Gilad, spoke during their fathers burial ceremony in the Negev near the family's Sycamore Ranch on Monday afternoon. Omri said, speaking to his father, "I was privileged to work with you & watch you worry over Israel's future."
Gilad Sharon recalled of the tragic impact of his brother Gur's death in 1977 on his father and their family. He continued by recounting his father's impossible missions in Gaza and in Sinai, and the massive building project he contributed to for Russian immigrants. Gilad said, speaking to his father, "time & time again you turned the impossibly into reality."
