My uncle Eso was such a great man. I loved him dearly and still do to this day. I have so many different memories and stories that I could share but I will mention 2 of them. Every year my father, my uncle, and I went to the sportsman's show at the IX center to see the latest and greatest fishing equipment, boats, and fishing trips. Every year we would always say we're going do this next year.....well....next year would almost always turn into the next year when we went back. Finally upon one trip to the sportsman's show, next year turned into this year and we were going fishing on Lake Chautauqua in New York. I was super excited to finally be going on an actual fishing trip. We arrived just fine and checked into our cabin which was nice and headed for the lake to do some fishing...nothing! The next day we got an early start and headed out in our aluminum John boat with it's powerful 10hp motor and started towards the west end of the lake....no luck. If you have ever been fishing with my uncle then you know his approach was to put the line in the water and pass out and wait! It started to look a little overcast when decided to go to the east side of the lake but went anyways. I decided to take a chance and troll my line in the water as we went.....and what do you know....i actually caught something. Well....we didn't make too far before the skies decided to let loose and ruin the day. Unfortunately, the rain was the least of our problems. I was sitting in the nose of the boat holding onto both sides trying to remain in the boat. When mother nature decided to let loose, she released a tropical storm upon us. Here we are in a 11ft aluminum John boat with a 10hp motor trying to navigate our way back to shore while battling 5 to 6 ft waves.... The nose of the boat would go up over the crest, then the entire boat and sight of any land would disappear when in the trough. Eso and my father were discussing the tactical approach of quartering the waves while all this was going on....needless to say we made it back, however, it took well over 40 minutes for a trip that realistically should of taken 5 minutes. When we finally got to shore and unloaded everything to the cabin, it was time to eat. In typical fashion for my uncle....he needed something sweet to eat.....and not just any old thing....no....it had to be the specific pie he was looking for! Thank God we found it! The next day we packed up to head home. I think we were on the road for a little over an hour or so before we realized that we had left something behind.....the damn fishing poles were behind the damn door! Needless to say, this is a memory that I will cherish for the rest of my life! I was in my early teenage years and still remember this vividly! May your sole be at peace and til I see you again! Love and miss you dearly, but you have left me with memories of love in my heart! Jonathan Dervic

My uncle loved his Cubbies, and surprised me with a special trip to go watch the Cubs play my favorite team the Cleveland Indians. This was no regular trip to the ballpark, oh no, we were heading to Wrigley Field to watch them play. This was for my 18th birthday and graduating high school. Super excited for this trip, however, once I learned the itinerary, I lost some enthusiasm. We headed out with a group of guys, Mike, Eso, myself, and the always entertaining Frankie. I feel like I'm leaving someone else off the list so I apologize. On our flight we heard a rather familiar voice and began looking around to see who it was. Wouldn't you know...it was AL Roker from the Today Show. This was when he was still in his bigger years...lol. Anyways, day 1 in Chicago was all set up for us to head to the golf course and play a round.....really? You couldn't have picked something that I'm actually good at? Well for the next several months I went and practiced with my friend who was on the high school golf team. Let's just say it was a struggle. First trip out I ended up hitting the ball super clean on the fairway only to see that unfortunately it was heading straight for the group playing in front of us......i loudly started yelling fore, however, it wasn't going to make a difference as my aim was spot on and it hit him in the back of his head. I didn't really get any better as the date neared and still couldn't figure out how to hit a driver or fairway wood. So the day came and we headed out to the golf course, when we arrived i explained to my uncle that I couldn't hit a driver and needed to find a 1 or 2 iron if I was going to be able to play. Luckily we found a 2 iron. The first tee box was directly outside of the pro shop and it required you to strike the ball cleanly through a man made gap in the forest that was in front of us. My first attempt went directly sideways at 3000 mph and smashed into the pro shop! Nice ....real nice Jon! Second attempt went through just fine. Long story short, I pulled myself together and ended up finishing second or 3 in our group! The next day was the game, we had great seats along the third base line just into the outfield. The experience was awesome especially since my team won! While we were at the game.... that familiar voice was near again...well all be damned if AL Roker wasn't sitting 3 rows behind us. My uncle took me out for a real Chicago dog, showed me where they grew up and introduced me to the transit lines! Another memory that I will carry with me the rest of my life! May your soul rest in peace until I see you again. My love and prayers to my Aunt Maria, cousins Enis, and Nadia and the rest of the family. Love and miss you dearly and will forever cherish the many moments you have given me! Jonathan Dervic

Ezzo, I love you more than you’ll ever know. I’m so sorry I didn’t share this with you sooner. Yesterday, the day you passed I was looking at mom’s little photo box I inherited. It had a 7 of her kids in it, well Enid’s picture was in it once upon a time, but it was missing. Anyway, for some reason I focused on your picture and showed Ron . I have no idea why I did that only to find out today...that you passed away. There are many regrets of things I should have said and could have done over the years to keep in touch better. No excuses except for life is too short when you start thinking about all the could haves and should haves. I do thank you for being such an awesome and supportive brother growing up. At least I have those wonderful memories of the holiday dinners, summer picnics, babysitting Enis and Nadia, and just popping in when I worked at Lakewood hospital. My only wish is that we had more contact as adults. Thank God you were blessed with such a wonderful family! I love you and Rest In Peace my sweet brother! All my love to you infinitely! My heart is broken Ezzo...gone too soon and too young! Esma❤️??
