LIFE is sometimes brutal.
I stil remember, 20 years ago, this early morning, when Croatian radio, telling us that basketball player Drazen Petrovic, died in fatal car accident in Southern Germany. The best ever, european player in NBA history. Emotions were unbelieavable, as Croatia still leaves this tragedy, year and year, not only, with more then 3,000 candles on his grave, each Novemeber 01.
Then, on ATP Rijeka tennis tournament, in 2009, by rear occassion, I was the last who ever took picture of tenis player Montcourt. And listening his dispute with my Slovenian friend, player, Blaz Kavcic. Just 24 hours later, we were all shocked with the tragic news, that Montcourt girlfriend found him dead in his appartment near Boulogna forest in Paris?? Can you believe it??

And now, so young, so nice, Vesna Rozic, at age 26. Last time I saw her, was in Solaris Sibenik, where she played for Slovenia, in MITROPA Coup. Unfortunately, exchange just one sentence,as her friend, Jana Krivec would not speak with me, so that Vesna must listen Jana.
Recently we reported Slovenian WIM Vesna Rozic was diagnosed with metastatic peritoneal cancer. The help from the chess community was not enough as Vesna has passed away.
Why did You take Vesna??
VESNA NE BI MRAVA ZGAZILA. ZAKAJ in ZAKAJ??
VESNA, lahko ti samo sele sporocim,da sam izjemoma potresen sa zalno novico in so tvojim odhodom. Solze mi teku na porti hotel DELTA La Ville Montreal, gdje pisem ovaj IN MEMORIAM. In gde so nedavno, bili tvoji slovenski para plavalci, in tenisac Gregor Zemlja.
