Larisa's son, who was 2 years old at the time of the attack, will hardly have any recollection of his mother speaking to him. Gerashchenko left behind a husband and three children, aged six, seven, and 15.


The attack, carried out by a suicide bomber from Islamic Jihad who blew himself up in the busy marketplace, brought fear back to the coastal city, which has been the target of past attacks.


The victims of the 2005 attack were Yaakov Rachmani, 68, of Hadera; Jamil Qa'adan, 48, of the Israeli-Arab town of Baqa al-Gahrbiya; Farhiya Machluf, 53, of Hadera; Michael Keufman, 68, of Hadera, Sabicha Nissim, 66, of Moshav Ahituv and Genya Polays, 66, of Hadera.


Gerashchenko, who was fatally wounded during the attack, was rushed to the hospital unconscious, and did not manage to recover even tough her body healed from its wounds. She will be laid to rest Thursday at the Hadera cemetary.
