I called him Oscar De La Renta after an expensive, wonderful perfume I love! He was a charming, good looking man but most of all Oscar had a heart of gold; he was always kind and helpful to others . I admired his principals and the true love Oscar had for Laurene and his family . The other name I had for Oscar was "trouble " and he and I would raz the heck out of each other everytime we met. He always wanted a perm and I kept telling him his hair just wouldn't handle it! Then he would give me grief about hitting my corvette in the parking lot and I'd catch up on the latest gossip of the family. What an awesome man. I appreciate the privilege of knowing such a Godly and exceptional human being. Love U Oscar❤️sher
