Signed note to Arthur Jibilian from General Draza Mihailovich
The inscription reads:
"To Mr. Jibilian, ally and friend, in these
difficult days of the fight for freedom."
General Draza Mihailovich


It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that
Arthur "Jibby" Jibilian
passed away this afternoon, Sunday, March 21, 2010.

He was a giant of a man. He was my friend.
Rest in Peace, Arthur.
Thank you for never giving up the good fight,
and for fighting it with such grace and dignity.

I really thought you would live forever.
We will never forget you.
