I have known Oscar since he began working at Weaver's. He was a wonderful man and a blessing to me and my family. I loved Oscar like a brother. Oscar is healthy and happy now as he walks the streets of gold in Heaven. There is a great peace and joy in knowing we will see him again someday in Heaven. Rest in peace, Oscar.

Oscar was the first person I met at Dignity Memorial. Although I have only known Oscar for less than one year, his consistent demeanor of compassion was wonderfully offset by his kindhearted humorous disposition.
I watched him perform many behind the scene tasks at Weaver Funeral Home. Always with the utmost dignity and respect for the families we serve. His memory will always keep the challenge before me to likewise feel the deep honor bestowed upon the funeral profession to do good upon our fellow man.
His sense of humor was always shown. The way he could make anyone feel comfortable and at home, the slight wink of his eye, his witty comments about anything and then some! He lived the good life of encourager and a sincere friend to many.
Thank you Oscar for crossing my path. Thank you Oscar for your kind words. Thank you Oscar for sharing a part of your journey with me!

Your family made such an impact on my life in the short time we were together. Even though I never met Oscar, I know through his family's witness, what a wonderful man that he was. You all will remain in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Donna (ICU waiting lounge)

I could always count on you and Barbara to have smiles on your faces and for some great laughs as we chatted along the fence line. Oscar, you will be missed by many and even though you are gone you will remain in our hearts…always
Love you Oscar,
