They ask his father (Ass.Prof.Dr. Ahmet DOGAN, Erciyes University) to talk about Furkan, he tells:
"Furkan was a kind, sincere and generous child. He had always a smiling face and he was fairly
modest. I have said 'child' for him, because he was the youngest member of our family.In fact, he was not like a child.
He was a fairly mature teenager. He was very neat and tidy.
In a summer holiday with our family, we had gone to a city. Furkan was a small child. In the city,
he had seen some untideness on roads and in some streets. Pointing them to us "I will make arrangements for all of
these when I get older..." He was just a small child when he said these...
He had paid attention to his clothing and personal cleanliness. Never had he rejected anybody.
He was so respectful to his olders. Never could you hear from him a rude or bad word and see his unpolite behaviour.
He was good- mannered. He even had not speak with loud voice.
His generousty was quite different. Never had he said his charities, he had done them secretly.
Later had we heard from others. He had spent much of his pocket money for charity organisations. Approximately
three months ago, a girl student in his school had wanted to arrange a charity organisation for Gaza and said
herself that "I need a person loved by all boys and girls in the school for this charity organisation". Then, she
had wanted help from Furkan and they had done the organisation together. According to Furkan, they had collected a considerable amount.
He was really loved by his friends. Also, his friends said that, Furkan had been helping and
tutoring for low classes for their lessons in the school.
He had not like showing and standing in the forefront. In the point of morality, he was a special child.
It is really very hard to leave Furkan for someone knowing him.
With his smiling face, cheerful behaviours and deep affection, he had brought peace and comfort to his friends...
In a summer school, when a volunteer was needed for service of students in the school Furkan was there. All
the summer he had beeing helping for cleaning, food service, washing dishes and so on... He had come to home in evenings as
being so exhausted but still he had not give up. In the school, seeing his diligent effort for the service, some of the people
thought that Furkan was the son of a servant woman working in the school and he was working for his pocket money and helping
for his mother.When they had learnt the fact, they really got surprised."
