Dear Vera & Family: I will miss Mama so much. It’s been my privilege to serve as her hospice nurse for all this time. Even though Mama couldn’t interact with me too much, I know we had a connection with each other. My heart is heavy knowing I will not see her anymore. You and your family are in my thoughts at this sad time. You are such wonderful people and it’s been an honor to know you. My deepest condolences on the loss of such a beloved person. You are in my thoughts; may Mama Rest In Peace. She will be a blessing in Heaven above. With warmest regards- Love, Rhonda
Dragi Vojo i Alemka, nisam nikad imala priliku da upoznam vašu dragu majku ali jesam upoznala vas, a time i plemenitu dušu vaše porodice. Tokom godina, naučili smo svi koliko je vaša porodica ulagala u sve projekte da pomognu održanja Srpske misli. Hvala Vam, i poštovnje majci koja vas je tako odgajila.. Moje saučešće, Dr. Marija Vučkovič Akademija Sveti Sava
