"I am so sorry of your loss. Nebojsa was a kind and gracious man. He supported our GI / Liver Unit with his services and always greeted me with a kind word and warm smile. He gave me worldly advise and share his love for fishing and for his family. While I never had a 'green thumb' for orchids, Nebojsa was the secret to beautfiul plants. I am hopeful that those orchids will bloom in his honor and in his memory. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. "
