    Sorry to hear about Oscar. We loved his fishing stories. Sometimes it seemed he was the only one catching fish. He has been a long time customer and we will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers to the family.

    I am sorry to hear of the lost of Oscar. We were classmates at Tileston and played Football together for the school. We lost contact in High School but I am glad to hear he enjoyed fishing and the coast during his later years. My prayers are with his family. An old classmate Ronald Williams.
