Oscarthecat

sharpsburg(z6MD)September 13, 2013

Good Morning,

I am Oscarthecat's daughter (and owner of the original oscarthecat). I wanted to let you know that my Dad, Steve S. is in the hospital in very poor health with cancer. We do not know the prognosis, but I know he really enjoyed his time online with you and at the swaps.

Please keep him in your prayers and thoughts at this terrible time.

Love, Mary S.

I was wondering where he was. I just lit my candle and send him good thoughts.
As a cancer surviver myself, I know he has a battle ahead, but it can be won. Thanks for letting us know.

All the best wishes and love.
(((Oscarthecat and family)))

Dear Mary, thanks for taking the time to let us know about your Dad. He never posted a lot, but what he wrote was always fun to read. I think I felt a "cyber affinity" for him, b/c I moved from Rockville, MD to WV--just below Hagerstown--and usually was familiar with any reference (s) he might make to Mid-Atlantic places.

Please let him know he is in my thoughts and prayers, and sunflowers and hugs are coming his way.

(((((Steve and his family)))))

Sorry to hear the news. I identified with him since I knew he had roots in Eastern Washington.
