Nita, Sharon, Charles, Vincent & Families. With you through our tears, we grieve and speak of Oscar. We also know he would want us to have a laugh and talk of him as if he's beside us. Thank you Oscar for always being a strong, positive role model and force in our lives. Jelis/Jelou/Frankie/Jerome (Washington DC/London, UK)

Nita & Boyd Family,
As you go through life's greatest sorrow--the loss of someone you love---may your own faith in God sustain you, bringing you comfort today, courage for tomorrow, and hope in your heart always.

I am so grateful to have known "Uncle" Oscar almost my entire life. Each visit spent with him was a joy and I will treasure his memory forever. He was my family and will be missed dearly. Love you, Oscar.

Please accept my deepest sympathy to the family of such a wonderful man. I have so many good memories of Oscar and he always kept a smile on my face. I will be praying for you Nita and the rest of the family. I know this is a great loss for you and the people that were lucky enough to know him. He will be missed but I know he is in a much better place with our Lord.
