Slavko Blagaj was a simple man, leading a simple life, dreaming simple dreams. When both he and his wife lost their jobs, simple dreams vanished with first unpaid bills.
Two t-shirts, one worn pair of pants, 2 sets of clean underwear, toothbrush and his old bicycle was all he took with him.
“As soon as I earn some money , I’ll send for you.”
“Be safe, my love. Call me.”
When police found him lying on the scorched grass, he was heard saying:
“I’ll just rest awhile… and then I’ll call her. I must call her.”
Slavko Blagaj was 47 when he died.
