Mato will be dearly missed by many extended family members and dear friends here in Canada and in Croatia.

Monika, thinking of you and your family during this difficult time. Sending prayers from the east coast. I always remember you telling me about your dad and the love he had for his garden. Will always remember the fresh pears you brought into work from his garden. Take care and so sorry for your loss.
