Your Mama named you Dragoljub meaning Dear love.
You were my Dear Love, my heart is broken and my grief inconsolable. You always promised if we stayed together all would be fine. I don't think I can manage this. When I said this in the past you would give me your beautiful smile and say you will Spiro.
You were my friend, my love and life companion. I will miss your beautiful blue eyes and magical smile. Dear love be a good boy in heaven until we meet again to waltz once more. Rest In Peace my Dear love the terrible battle is over.
Love Gemma and your companion dog Boris.

You leave us with so many happy memories. Thank you for giving two of us our first opportunity in gainful employment (not to mention the free chicken and chips). We will always be your "young cowboys" even though one of us is a girl. Your smile and sense of humour will be how we remember you most. Our love and sympathy is with you Aunty Gemma and we will always be here for you. The Koutsoukos kids and their partners George, Chrisanthi and Ben, Adam and Brad and Ethan and Caitlin.
Fond memories of happy times down Busso and on the golf course.
