Thank you Pam. Yes I will miss him but he is home with mom just like he told her at the grave Christmas. And he isn't in pain God is taking care of both of them.

The strongest man I ever knew. As a teenager working part time at the glass plant...Oscar was my first boss. He was always willing to help out when I got behind. I ran into him from time to time over the years. He always remembered me. Working at the glass plant was a hard job. Oscar encouraged me to get an education so I could find a good job. I did and went on to retire....from the glass industry....God bless you Oscar.

Pam, I know your heart is broken. You were blessed with a wonderful father...and a fine gentleman he was. He was a great friend to Daddy and all of our family. Memories of him helping Daddy work on cars and an old boat in our basement or just dropping by to visit. I will be praying for you and your family.
