Dear Barbara and family, our sincere condolences for the loss of your dear mother. It was an absolute pleasure getting to know Katarina at St. Peter's Hospital, as our Mom's roommate. A lovely and sweet lady! We will miss our chats!

I have very fond memories of Mrs Holjevac. She was a dear person and made some of the best apple strudel I have ever eaten! She will be missed! Sending you love and white light. xx
