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.

Oh Mary, what terrible news.

My thoughts and prayers are with him, you and the rest of your family.

Is there an address, we might send cards/letters to for him?

Your father has a legacy of plants in people's yards that have taken on his name. I have several Oscarthecat's dahlias that are always referred to that way when I show them off in my garden

Mary,
I'm so sorry to hear about your father. Please let us know how he is and or whether we can send him a card or something.
He's been such an inspiration to all of us in this group. My prayers are with him and you and your family.

Bonnie

I'm checking in. I'm hoping you had a warm and wonderful holiday season together. He was a good man, as your grandmother was a great lady.

Mary,
Are you taking care of Steve's day lilies? He grew the most beautiful varieties.

I lost my mom suddenly-ish in August. It continues to sting. I hope you're doing well.
