Published: 2013 / 07 / 21
Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander II and Crown Princess Katherine attended today the funeral of little Tijana Ognjanovic at the Lesce cemetery in Belgrade, together with Tijana’s parents, members of the family, representatives of the Ministry of the Interior and hundreds of citizens who gathered to pay their final respect. The requiem was officiated by His Grace Bishop designated of Bihac and Petrovac Atanasije and clergy of Serbian Orthodox Church at the Church of John the Almsgiver. Tijana died on Monday, July 15, 2013, in the Texas Children Hospital in Houston, Texas where she was due to have heart transplantation.
The struggle for Tijana’s new heart stirred and moved both the public and the media in Serbia, and prompted many socially responsible companies, institutions and individuals, who put great efforts into raising the necessary funds for the trip to Houston.
Tijana’s parents Nebojsa and Jelena Ognjanovic express eternal gratitude to all who joined them and supported them in their struggle to save the life of their child.
