I was deeply saddened to hear about the death of our dear Marko. I am so sorry for not having an opportunity to see him once again. The little time that was given to us to spend together was full of love, joy, laughter, hugs, and some time tears. Embracing you all, your cousin Ivana

To The Family of Marko, Although we cannot be there at this time you are in our thoughts and prayers. We are deeply sadden by our dear friend Marko's passing. We know that he is in a better place with God and the Angel's have welcomed him home. There is no more bedrest and suffering for Marko. Hopefully the Serbs are with him celebrating his joyful return to Heaven. I hold a special memory of Marko. When I was about 11 years old my dad brought him to our home (he spoke very little English) and I played Santa Lucia for him on the piano. He smiled and clapped and loved it. Those are beautiful memories and I will never forget him. All of our Love, Sandy and Kuma Rachel

Dear Mel, Mark and Michael, although far away, your father has always been a loving member of our family and we used to mention him often at family gatherings. He found his happiness far away from his homeland, but we know that he never forgot his roots and his family in Montenegro. Please accept our deepest condoleances and be so kind to throw one red rose over his casket from all of us in Montenegro. With love, Ranka, Giga, Milan, Billie and our children and grandchildren

Mike, & Michelle, Marko & Tina, Melanie....My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you say goodbye to your father. I only saw him a couple of times, but he seemed funny. Try to keep your memories of him close to your hearts, now and always, and always remember that he is in a much better place, back with his beloved - your Mom, and is no longer in any type of pain or suffering.

Melanie, Thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet your dad. I enjoyed him so... his sense of humor and intelligent conversation, his wit and charm.... I just adore him... nearly as much I adore you. You are blessed to be of such good stock! May you and your family find peace that your parents are together once more. xoxox
