Hi Kathy,
I have known Tony since 2005, when i used to work with His family Doctor.
He is a very jolly and a great joker.
Always smiling making fun of us and gives us goodies during Christmas time.
It’s been a surprise when i saw you and him at the Burnaby Hospital and found out that he is very ill.
I was sad and since then and up to this moment i have been including him in my prayers.
I was shocked when I heard that he had passed.
The last time we we’re talking was at least 3 days before his passing. I told him how i feel sorry about his situation; and he said “ it is what it is”.
I remembered his face still smiling while he was waiting for you outside the hospital. He said you were parking your car.
That day I have been praying that he will recover and at least stay with us for a little more time.
But sadly he is now with Our dear Almighty.
No more pain no more sufferings.
I am sending my deepest condolences on your loss together with your family.
Take care Kathy and i hope we will meet again.

Povodom nagle i neopisivo prerane smrti aktivnog i dobro poznatog člana Hrvatske zajednice, supruzi Kati, kćeri Kati s obitelji, sinu Anti Jr. (Tony) s obitelji te bližoj i daljnjoj rodbini u Vancouver-u i Hrvatskoj, izražavam najiskreniju sućut. Počivao u domu mira gdje nema suza ni boli, gdje te čekaju Bog i Anđeli.
