48-year-old Enis Mrvoljak was a happy guy.

Always smiling, always the life of the party and his dear friends say, he never hesitated to lend a hand.

"I will miss this guy,” said his friend Merima Lukovac in a thick Bosnian accent, “This guy will stay in my heart all the time. I will never forget this guy, never."

Lukovac says Mrvoljak lived with her in Belcamp for a while, both of them part of a very tight Bosnian community in Harford County and Dundalk where he was currently staying.

Lukovac's daughter made him the Godfather of her child.

"It's gonna be hard,” Dzenana Lukovac said, “It's hard. And when I still think about it it's a dream. I don't believe that it's real yet. It's just hard. Trying to explain it to my kids and all because they are only just two and three so it is hard to explain to the kids when they still ask about him."

Mrvoljak is survived by his wife who is flying in from Bosnia Thursday evening, but here in the United States, he had no family, just friends like co-worker Oscar Romero.

They were close, friends say; Romero was the second victim of Radee Prince's workplace shooting spree.

And in Virginia today, the family Bayarsaikhan Tudev is relying on its faith.

The 53-year-old worked for Advanced Granite Solutions for 4 years.

His family, including his 3 children and wife of 32 years are also trying to make sense of yesterday's seemingly random violence.

"The best dad and best husband anyone could ever ask for. He never drank, he never had any bad habits. He was a very nice, soft-hearted, good hearted, easy going," his daughter Suvd Bayarsaikhan said.

At least one of the victim's family was aware of Prince.

Tudev's daughter mentioned her father said Prince didn't really get along with the other employees and seemed like a very cold person.
