EXCERPT FROM LITERATURE:
“It was very difficult for me when we took care of Mili Vučetić. He came from the partisans to Mostar in June 1942. He was seriously ill with tuberculosis. He was not allowed to stay in the house. We placed him along the Neretva, under the Liman cave, near Sitnica beach. Milojko Spremo Zeko, Milo’s brother Lola Vučetić, Rade Vuković and I took care of him. We brought him food and medicine. He was sick for several months. We feared for his fate. It is difficult to know that there is no cure for a sick person, but we tried to help and prolong his life in those difficult conditions. We looked for medicines, both from doctors and from families who had such patients. When we finally saw that there was no way to save him, we decided, even though he resisted, to take him home. At least let him die in home as a man when he could not live in it because of the war. After his death, a funeral was organized, at which there were many activists who knew that Mili Vučetić was a fighter, a partisan. They brought red roses to his grave. There was also a wreath , on which we wrote “Last greeting from friends”. We couldn’t have written “from comrades” because the police, who were watching everyone gathered for the funeral, would have found out what it was about. When he was buried, we mourned him, but we were also proud to say goodbye to him in a dignified way.”
