I am so sorry to hear of Oscar's passing .. I attended Lamar school also a few grades behind Oscar and was a 62 graduate from there ... I saw him at the market and he was always pleasant to be around.... There has always seemed to be a bound among the students from Lamar and I am thankful to have been a part of that School.... Our prayers and thoughts are with the Family.... Rick..

Aunt Bobbie, Belinda and Danny. I'm so sorry and saddened by Uncle Sugs passing. I wish we could have made it to say goidbye and to be with you during this difficult time but moms health at this time made it impossible. Uncle Sug is with the rest of the family patiently watching and waiting for us to join him. God gained another angel and I am so proud to call him my Uncle Sug. Fond memories will be with me always. I love you all, and may God comfort your hearts always.
