Kobi, you were a bright light in an often dark world. I didn't know you well, but you had a smile on your face every time I saw you. I had the pleasure of reffing several games/scrimmages you played in, most recently a scrimmage a week before your senseless death. You were so good!
Your sparkling shorts, beard, and personality will be missed.
Condolences, love, light, and peace to family and friends. I hope you all know how much he was admired and loved.

Kobi was such a ray of light when we would all do our online gaming together. Always had a positive viewpoint and nothing ever got him down. We lost our friend and heaven gained an angel. My sincere condolences to the family.
