Rade and Milt, Your father was an incredible man. I hope you know you have my deepest sympathies. I will never forget your father. I have so many warm memories of him. Whether we were sitting around your kitchen table eating some Cevapcici that your mom had cooked, or he was watching us beat the heck out of each other with our one armed boxing in your backyard, he was always there quietly making sure we were staying out of trouble and on the right path. I will always admire his “get up and go” and his incredible work ethic. He love for all of you was obvious and he always took great pride in each of his children’s accomplishments. As you know, your father was no stranger to sacrifice and hardship, yet he demonstrated an indomitable spirit. He is a example to us all and I am a better person for having been blessed to have had him in my life. Your friend always, Jim ~ Jim Christner, Birmingham, Michigan
