  1. Matthias, Hristina, Heidi, and Helena. God Bless you all and we will keep you all in our prayers. Just remember that Vesna is with God and she is at peace. We’ll be here to help you.

    All our prayers and love,
    Brendan, Svjetlana, Lana, and Charles

    1. Was fuer ein Schock!!! Wir hatten ja keine Ahnung. Wir denken an euch, Matthias, Heidi, Hristina und Helena. Moegt ihr alle die Kraft finden, so einen schweren Schlag zu ueberstehen. Alles Liebe aus Panama. Ken, Paula und unser Toechterlein Sofia.

  2. I met Vesna one day when I was in a car accident on Diablo Rd. Vesna heard the crash and came running outside to see if everyone was ok. She brought us into the house (we were fine) and gave us ice-pops and calmed us down as we waited for the police to come. She was so warm and funny and loving, and obviously adored her beautiful daughters who were playing all around the house. In the 10 years after that day she often invited my me over for cappuchinos and always greeted me with a huge smile and a warm hug. I will remember her as a positive, loving, bright and kind person- a most special role model for her wonderful daughters.
    I wish the family peace and togetherness in this difficult time,

  3. To my regret I met her only once when I visited the US with my wife and Matthias and Vesna graciously invited us for dinner. She was a very kind woman, making us strangers (to her) feeling very welcome. She is a great loss and left us far too early. Our best wishes go with Matthias and their children to overcome this unbearable loss.

  4. “Ako ti jave: umro sam – ne veruj, to ne umem. Na ovu zemlju sam svratio da ti namignem malo. Da za mnom ostane nešto kao lepršav trag. I zato: ne budi tužan. Toliko mi je stalo da ostanem u tebi budalast i čudno drag. Noću, kad gledaš u nebo, i ti namigni meni. Neka to bude tajna. Uprkos danima sivim kad vidiš neku kometu da nebo zarumeni, upamti: to ja još uvek šašav letim i živim.” -Miroslav Mika Antić
    Vole te tvoji Crnogorci

  5. Dear Matthias,
    I was happy that we met today in Pleasanton. It was brief but meaningful.
    I wish you and your daughters all the strength you need. Hang-on together!
    We must stay in contact.

  6. Vesna would always welcome me into her house when I would stop by to visit her and Matthias by chance riding my bike passing their home.
    At all times she showed her hospitality and served me a fresh cup of coffee and her lastest selection of cookies. Vesna would always talk about Matthias, what he was doing, and how they keep their relationship very much alive, spending quality time together as often as possible having a glass of wine together for instance.
    I enjoyed learning that there are still happy relationships taking place out there.
    Vesna, I’ll miss having a chat, that cup of coffee, and a cookie with you when on my way to Mount Diablo.
    Vesna fly with the angels.


    1. Dear Ewald, those words mean a lot to me. I want to remember 17 years of bliss, for me, but more important for Vesna. Vesna always talked about our perfect love and I will carry this forward, my summer dream will be with me forever.

  7. Dear Vesna,

    Remember when I use to sing Celine Dion to you?

    I will never forget, that ever since I met you- and my father met you- you brought with you so much joy. Now that your light is gone I feel that I have lost my best friend. Forever.

    I love you with all my heart and you were there for me in my greatest sorrows and tried to understand me and comfort me. I feel I have utterly failed you! I can barely spend any moment of happiness without thinking of your laughter, your smile, or how funny you were. Life is so cruel to keep you away from us.

    I try to celebrate your life and live mine through the words of wisdom you always tried to instill in me. I try to live through the hope you always had in me.. That no parent has ever, and most likely never will, have in me quite the way you did.

    Vesna… My mother! My best friend! You were suppose to meet my first born and raise my children with me…Watch all your children grow old.

    You were the one who cried when you put my wedding dress on.
    You were the one who never gave up on me, even when my own father had. You took me in, when I had no home to go to. You loved me unconditionally.

    I don’t know if there is any use in saying this…But please come back. Please.

    Deine Tochter,


  8. I don’t even know the way I stopped up here, but I assumed this publish used
    to be good. I do not recognize who you might be however definitely you’re going to a well-known blogger should you
    aren’t already. Cheers!
