Dear Ines and Boris,

Your joining the Mayo Legacy only confirms once again the generous spirit and commitment to the community that has always distinguished you. All the words I can write will be insufficient to express what I feel.

And an addition, that it is a son of our beloved Croatia who offers such an example, makes me doubly proud. I am honored to be your friend!

Dear Boris

I just completed 12 years in Cortec in December and it's been such a big part of my life! Not only I am happy that I do what I love but I also feel like I sort of "grew up" here. So many moments and memories. We, Croatian team , are so happy to be part your story and to be able to see EcoCortec grow through the years as a result of our work and dedication under your guidance. 15 years ago not many people here knew about our company and now I have papers calling me regularly ,asking us to tell our story. Such a great feeling! Thank you and Ines for making us feel a part of your family.

I think what you have done is absolutely wonderful and is a shining example to all companies. We are working on ESG for the business but also personally we have installed solar panels and are using electric cars. Well done Boris!

Hello Boris,

I wanted to reach out and let you know that I’m thinking of you and Ines during this hurricane weather in Sarasota. Hopefully, both of you and our Cortec family in Sarasota are safe. Storms can be scary and life changing and if you need anything at all please let me know. I’m an avid boater and great with my hands incase you need someone to help down there.

“Praying for our Cortec Family”

Ole Lilland  @ 28/07/2022 08:07:11
A lot of fun. Today we rented a small boat and went out to the islands. Swimming and snorkeling. Leaving tomorrow morning. Thanks a lot for borrowing us the house. It’s been a fantastic week. Back to work on Monday. Hope to see you soon. Everyone sends their regards Thanks again

Vilde, Jesper, Marianne & Ole

Dear Ines and Boris,

Fantastic stay we have had in Losinj and Nerezine! Villa Nina is superb and particularly confortable to rest from our daily and gastronomic excursions (regards from Drago in restaurant Baracuda)... We thank you very much again! Thank you as well to Ivana for her precious advisings to visit the best places...

Looking forward to seeing you soon again, we wish you a beautiful summer.
Franck, Marc, and Team

Radim Ušel  @ 11/07/2022 02:07:00
Ines and Boris,

Let me thank you once more for the opportunity to visit such beautiful place like Losinj is. Villa Nina is really something you can be proud of. Nerezine small but very friendly place. Mali Losinj and Čikat - as I have already said - it is Croatian Monaco.
We were lucky, because everything was really perfect - place, people, weather, food, sea....drinks :) what more you can wish?!
Thank you again and hope to see you soon!

Best regards

Radim and his family :)

Bob Boyle  @ 20/06/2022 08:06:05

Your presence at WSM was felt through the hugs and sadness as we learned about Nina and laughs and chuckles as we remembered the postcards from her and many of us shared our own stories of our mothers.

I’m sad for you Boris, but also inspired by how you cared so deeply for your parents and shared your success and journey with them. No doubt your Mom and Dad were proud and you filled their lives with smiles and joy.

Wishing you comfort…

Bavarian, Behzad B  @ 17/06/2022 03:06:22
Dear Boris

My deepest condolences to you for loss of your mother. Your dear Nina was so loved and was so good to everyone who knew her, a strong woman and role model for all of us. We deeply miss her, and we pray for you. May your mother's soul rest in peace.

Ming Shen  @ 17/06/2022 08:06:35

My heart aches for the passing of your mother.
Your loss and your sorrow.
When we first arrive to this world
It’s our mother who first greets us
Protects us and nurtures us
Along the way
Never give up

Never yield
Time now comes
For us to send her off to another space
With our gratitude and our sense of forever indebtedness
It’s likely a better place

A place where she stays young and vital and strong and free in eternity
A circle is complete in the universe
One of many circles
Peace and calmness descends
We were loved

We continue to love
With Ines by your side
You are loved by your Cortec family
This morning’s gathering at St Paul Hotel felt different
Without you and Ines at the head table
Quietly we send our most sincere condolences

Please be strong

We wait for you to come back
To offer our heart felt hug and love


Ming and Sean

Snjezana Mikolic  @ 16/06/2022 10:06:31
Dear Boris and Ines,

I am very sorry for your loss.

It is also my loss and I have no words of gratitude that such a great person like Nina considered me her friend. I believe that now nothing is stopping her from walking the endless paths of heaven.

I wish you to go through this difficult period bravely.

We are with you.

Vanessa Thompson  @ 16/06/2022 10:06:53
Hi Boris,

Just heard the sad news about Nina – I’m so very sorry. Didn’t want to disturb you by calling, but know that I’m thinking of you. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do.

I’ll never forget her sweet postcards or when she and your father would plant flowers outside the building; she was such a unique and strong person!
