    Our heartfelt condolences to all of you on the loss of such a lovely man.

    We remember Josip as someone with high moral standards who never shied away from truth. And on top of his never-ending patriotism for his beloved homeland, Croatia, Josip was also a “dobar Ličanin!” May he rest in peace. +

    We share your sadness and are sending you our caring thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time,

    Nikola and Mary Čolak
