Oscar will be missed by all who knew him. I met him through my friends, Irma and Girard. They enjoyed being with Oscar and his family on their special occasions. I will remember him in my prayers.

Dear Lucile, MY sincere Condolence on the passing of your husband. While I did not know him that well I'm sure he will be missed by many. I found out who he was when Ray and I joined the Acadian Club. He would play Texas Hold em and we would end up siting next to each. He would make me laugh. He seemed to be a very nice person.

I would like to wish Lucille and all my cousins my deepest condoleances during this difficult time. There is no way to be prepared for death, it just has to be dealt with one day at a time , with lots of support... Uncle Oscar , Seems like we were just little children hanging around our parents with our Aunts and Uncles.. You were such a great person , an uncle, a brother but most of all a great father to your family. You will always remain in our memories . You will be sadly missed ...that special smile of yours and your amazing blue eyes .. Rest well in Heaven ,, Charlene XOXO

My Dad was by far the funniest, most loving and caring man I had the pleasure to call dad. He loved his family with all his heart, even during his last days he would still give us a funny face as if to say don't be sad. I am going to miss the laughs, cherish the memories, and hold my daddy in my heart until we meet again. Love you daddy...... Tina
