Draga Đina,
Borila si se do zadnjeg trenutka i bila uz svog Dragana.
Ostani takva u svojoj molitvi.
Neka Gospod svetlošću Svoga lica obasja dušu pokojnog Dragana, a tebi i Stefanu balgodaću Svetoga Duha preobrazi sadašnju bol u nadu na ostvarenje Njegovih obećanja. Primite naše iskreno saučešće,
Tijana i Dragan Mataruga
