Marija had an out-of-town relative drop by unexpectedly Monday night. He’s a second cousin whose family left Croatia 40-50 years ago to live in Argentina. They haven’t seen each other in 47 years!
Here’s what Marija wrote: “His name is Lobel. His mother and I are first cousins-two sister’s children. Lobel, is my second cousin. His mother/ Danica, passed away a few years ago 🙁 It was his mother’s 83rd birthday last Monday. His mother left Croatia when I was a little girl. Her father lived in Argentina, and she came to live with him. She met Croatian man and had 2 sons with him. Lobel and his brother were born in Argentina and for the first and only time I saw them in Croatia when they were little boys. Lobel, 6 years old at the time and younger brother. His business partner’s name is Martin.”
