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.

RE: Oscarthecat

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

RE: Oscarthecat

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.


RE: Oscarthecat

I am so sorry to hear this. Wishing him all the best ~

RE: Oscarthecat

Hello Mary,

Just saw this post. I hope that all is well with Steve and will keep him in my prayers.

RE: Oscarthecat

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.

RE: Oscarthecat

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.
