Dear George, Barb & Sue, I know what a great man your father was through Suzanna, a great woman. Your godly and good father has left you all with a blessing of love and kindness that you all now will continue to pass on to this world. He knew where to go during WWII, and he knew where to go this last time, too. Love from Genet

My dear friends George, Sue, Barb and families: I just received an e-mail from Mihailo Martinovich and am saddend that I did know about the falling asleep in the Lord of your +Father whom I saw at Gracanica with George while it was still warm. He recognized me immediately and my first thoughts were of when my late parents and I went for a visit a few years ago, had lunch and a property tour with your parents. He is now with his beloved wife +Barbara in our Heavenly Kingdom and Heavenly Serbia, may their Memory be Eternal. Vjecnaja Pamjat Vuckovic Family = Milenko, Milan, Mateja, Mihailo

Dear Dr. George, Barbara, and Sue, Please accept my deepest sympathy in the passing of your dear father. I remember talking to him when I first moved to St. Louis about the Chetniks. He will be missed by all those who loved. Now he will be with his lovely wife. Memory eternal.

Dear George, Barb & Sue, My deepest sympathy on the passing of Uncle George. It was very odd that I was surfing the internet to look for something in the Chicago Tribune website and decided to also look at the obituaries while there and see his name. Gob works in strange ways to let us know I guess. May his memory be eternal. Mica
