Darin BristowSo sad- I only saw this last night! : ( My deepest condolences to Slavica and Srdjan and the Obradovic family. Srdjan was like a brother growing up and we spent so much time together in London- I loved Slavica and Dobrica like aunts and uncles! Dobrica drove Srdjan and I everywhere as young kids....for GI JOE toys, let us have is Canadian Tire money for action figures, he took us into McDonalds for my first Big Mac, and smiled and kept his cool as Srdjan and I kept him awake during late night sleepovers and kids. They were awesome and I have so many great memories of him and their apartment at 80 Admiral Drive. I can still smell the new car smell of his 1979 Green Duster. Rest in Peace and again, much love to the entire family- I am sad I could not attend services.
