So many fun times shared with Oscar and his family. We sat around many fires and pots of jambalaya playing guitars and singing those good ole songs he grew up on. Oscar could entertain and get us all laughing with his great personality. Sincere condolences, prayers and hugs to his family. He will be missed. God bless.

To the family of Oscar and Linda Mire,
I want to express my deepest sympathy to the entire family. If I can share this with all of you and it bring comfort , I have never met any other people in my lifetime so caring of others, loving to others and were so truly genuine in heart! They truly loved each other and their families. They are at peace with the Heavenly Father and have earned their wings. I will miss both of them! Fly high my friends!

I worked with mr Oscar for physical therapy in the home and he was always fun to work with. I also found out about Ms Linda and was shocked about both of them. I wanted to go hear him play but never had the chance! Prayers for the family and friends in this hard time!!!
