    To Mr. John Katic Family, I work at SWVC and I was a friend of your father’s. Such a wonderful man, I enjoyed our talks, I am also Croatian so we would talk about that. His wit and just our fun conversations, I am going to miss him so very much. One of my favorite things about your Dad was when he was still eating lunch in the lunch room and I finished my lunch and I was walking back in the building…. every single day I would wave to him and blow him kisses and he would wave and blow kisses right back! One last thing his obituary picture with his smile, I will always remember, he had the bestest smile! I am so glad to call him my friend. Rest easy John.
