I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. He was a great inspiration to his family and he will be missed by all that knew him. He has joined his parents in Heaven and become a guardian angel for his children and grandchildren. God Bless

Joseph Rojek (Chicago, IL)

On behalf of the Rojek family, we have shared many great memories with Mick over the last 23 years. All of us will come and go but our memories will live on. Andrew and Christopher, you are wonderful people largely due to the love your father gave you over the years. He has been with you, called you all the time, for that you did everything possible while your Dad roamed this Earth. Love to all!


Mick was a good human being. Always a hard worker and a great parent to Chris and Andrew . His kids are basically right from the same tree of respect and do good to others. He will be missed. Love Max

Richard Morton (Chicago, Illinois)

Miles was my constant legal companion at The Central Hearing Facility for the last 6 years. His bigger than life smile would fill any day with joy. He was a complete gentleman and knowledgeable lawyer, and an Officer of CALBA, the Chicago Administrative Law Bar Association. My heart cried when I heard the new today. May his family and his relations have my deepest condolences. Richard Morton

Me embarga una gran tristeza tu partida querido primo Milan.Te estaré siempre agradecida por haber sido el primer familiar por parte de mi padre que ubiqué cuando comencé a navegar en internet.Recuerdo que comencé a chatear contigo en mi deficiente croata y me alentabas a que siguiera, ya que me entendías perfectamente, fué muy emocionante saber que eras hijo de mi querida Ognjana,y nieto de barba Mile, personajes que desde pequeña conocí y aprendí a querer por los relatos de mi padre. Ahí me contaste de todos ustedes y me abriste las puertas para contactarme con el resto de la familia.Pocivaj u miru,luz a tu alma, paz y esperanza para tu querida familia
