For those of you who did not know Oscar…..
Great kid. Friendly, funny, always well liked by all of his peers. Oscar was a smart guy who would have found his way in this world in a apositive way. Such a sad story.
I hope his friends recuperate well.

Tell us the driver was drunk and speeding without telling us.

Thank you for sharing, Mr. Hefferan. Oscar was a warm, social, wonderful young man. I will remember him by his mop of curly dark hair and his great smile. Rest in Peace, Oscar.
