Oscar, my love.
I am so glad for the brief visit we recently had. We talked alot through the years since working together at Pilot Oil and our feelings for each other, although we were apart. We know how much we meant and still meant to each other. You were one of the closest friends that I've had in my life. I will miss our phone conversations.

Rest in Peace. I love you still.

Oscar was my supervisor during the S.E.G. days of what is now Energy Solutions Inc. He was always fun to work with and an easy going person to work for. He will be missed. God bless the family. Mark McCullough

Oscar was my supervisor when I started at SEG. I remember all the great times and moments, from those rotation shift days,that I had with him. He was like a second father to me, after my dad passed away in 1994. I,m really going to miss him.

I did not hear about Oscar until today.
I am thankful to have worked with Oscar many years.
The video was wonderful, showing how he loved and was loved during his life here on earth! For all of us whom has opened the door and accepted Christ and God's grace, it will be even a larger family reunion one day and we will see him again! May the lord fill your void with his presence and wrap his arms around you during your grief.

Rhonda, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time. Oscar will be missed by all of us, Oscar always made us laugh. Oscar loved you and thought the world of you, and you were always on his mind. Oscar took me in as a roommate when he didn't even know who I was, and he was the best friend I could ever ask for. All we can do now is just tell stories about our times with Oscar, because if I know Oscar he's in Heaven telling stories about his time with us. And of course meeting his favorite driver Dale Earnhardt. Oscar we love you and we will miss you.

Rhonda, I am sorry I was not in town when your dad passed. It was so good to see you and him that day in Target; I wish I had made more time to see him. I will miss him, but I know I will see him again! I pray that God gives you peace during this time.

Dear Family, Oscar and I started in the first grade at Mt.Olive Elementary School. He would take a nap in Miss Nichols' bookcase. I thought he was the funniest and cutest boy in our class. I have not heard from since we graduated from YHS. Remember all your good times. God bless you in this time of need. Peace be with you. Nancy Thomas King
