      Rest in Peace Gordana (Goki56)

      This is probably the hardest post I've ever made.
      I spoke with Suzi, Gordana's daughter, just now and she said that our friend Gordana passed away this morning
      from cancer.

      Gordana has been on Koiphen almost from the beginning and has served as WWKC President, Vice President,
      Secretary, and on the Board of Directors. She was a Koiphen administrator and moderator. She also had been
      Koiphen Person of the Year in 2020.

      She didn't post about ponds or koi that often, but she loved her pond and pets. She always had amazing
      flowers growing in her streams and surrounding the pond. Zoran (Zoki51, her husband and friend) kept it all
      running smoothly and she enjoyed the color part.

      Gordana's true generosity was always on display. She'd send you a little gift for no reason at all. She seemed
      to have a sense of knowing when you needed cheering up... or at Christmas time she was notorious for
      hand making gifts and things to make the Holiday special and surprising you with one.

      I'll miss her always. Love you Gordana...
      --Steve

      We are very sad and wish all the best for her family. Such a lovely lady. We got to meet he when one year her and Zoran flew out to one of out Koi Parties. Linda and her have kept in touch since then and we knew she was in the hospital. Such a shame. Rest in peace Gordana, you will truly be missed.

      Such sad news. It didn’t seem very long before the cancer took her. She was a dear woman and will be greatly missed. Prayers for her family!

      Gordana was the sweetest, nicest person to me and to my granddaughter Suzanne. My heart is broken. I spoke to her daughter Suzi and have been dreading this sad news.
      I have been blessed to have known Gordana all of these years.

      She has helped make Koiphen & the WWKC what it is today. I will always miss her.

      Keeping Zorn, Suzi and Alex in my prayers for comfort.

      RIP my sweet friend.

      Gordana was so special and kind. Her loss will be felt here on this forum, and in some ways it will never be the same. Even though I knew this news was coming, my heart is broken.

      Godspeed Gordana. RIP❤️

      I am so saddened to hear this news also. When I was going through my own cancer, she called several times to cheer me up. Talking with her was like talking with someone you had known all of your life. She was such a funny person, in addition to being kind and caring. I was lucky enough to receive some of her hand made crocheted Christmas ornaments that I will treasure forever.

      My prayers are also with her husband and children and the rest of her family, I know they are going to need them in the upcoming days.

      Rest In Peace, Gordana.
