Lu, we are greatly saddened to learn of Oscar's passing. A fine gentleman he was, and not only one of our favourite patients, but we also enjoyed his worldly conversations . . . and admired his intelligence.

All our love - Dr. Alex Grigoruk and Anna

Dear Lu and family, Our hearts ache for you at this time of difficulty. We pray the Lord grant you peace and understanding and comfort. Lu, Oscar was a great friend to me. He helped me start in geology and from then we shared many wonderful experiences. Going to Africa with him was a highlight of my life. Having lunch with him every week at Peking Garden was another highlight of my life. I miss him. Our children all remember going to the Jansens for Halloween. You gave the best treats!! We will always love, respect, and admire Oscar. Thank you for your friendship through these many years. Love Richard and Louise Brandley and family.
