  1. Dear Little Oscar,
    I was so sorry to hear about your Dad’s death. Oscar sure was a good man and always full of fun. Take care of yourself Little O.

  2. Little Oscar, so sorry to hear Oscar Snr passed away, he will be missed dearly, especially during my trips to the USA. I am forever grateful for the kindness and generosity he’s shown me over the years . After my divorce, he took me into his home. When my company closed and I needed a job, he help provide the way to my 7yr career at the IRS. I’ll always remember his warm smile! God Bless

  3. Dear Oscar Jr.

    So sorry this is late. Although it has been a few years since we last got together, I would often talk about him with my hubby who had the pleasure of meeting him one day in CA at Kenny and Vera’s. It was great spending time with the 3 of them and reminiscing about the ‘good old days’.

    Oscar was one of the good guys. He always had good advice for me. I wish I would have followed some of it!

    I think my fondest memories of him were the scrabble games that took place way late into the night at Tori. Oscar and Tim Mears never failed to amaze me with their knowledge and ability to find the most points with one letter.

    I will truly miss him.
    Maddee Lapin and Ivy Center Tuber also send their condolences.

    Take care.

  4. I went to Jr College with Oscar. We worked and played together at Loop College, in Chicago. I will continue to cherish those days of friendship.
    He was a good guy.
