2 Condolences for Stojan Madic

  • Deda, you were such a wonderful man who was loved by everyone. I will always remember your humor and the fun times we had when you and Mommy were in the rehab together, the three of us having lunch together everyday and us playing bingo. I remember everyday having to say to you “Speak English” when you would start talking in your language and I couldn’t understand you. You will be greatly missed by all. xo

  • My deepest sympathy. My heart goes out to all of you. What an amazing man Deda was. So sorry for your loss.
    Iskreno saučešće
