    Friends are like stars, some are going out others continue to shine forever … and still others fall down … but we are sure Ned will shine forever in our hearts.
    Unfortunately, the fate is a shoreless sea that overwhelms us and with sudden fury, delete us.
    Courage brace yourself, we are close with our most sincere condolences.

    Dearest friends,

    I was so sorry to hear about your tremendous loss. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. I last saw Nedjeljko and his wife when they arrived back to Canada from Croatia in September. My husband and I were on the same flight. Due to Pero’s illness and hospitalization, I was unable to attend the funeral, but you were and remain in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all.
