I am profoundly saddened to hear this news and heart is breaking for the family. The obituary truly reflects what a beautiful soul she has “Dragica had a huge heart and a kind word for everyone she met. She will be remembered for her contagious laugh and beautiful smile.“ I was fortunate to have gotten lost with her and Marina Krasic in Medugorje July 1997. We shared many laughs about that time through the years and just adored her warmth and kindness. She and Mr. Sopcic were such a gorgeous couple with the happiest nature and a wonderful family. Sending all my love to you all xx
