Oh my dear uncle Omar,
Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun...you were so brave!
You were an amazing man and I truly enjoyed your stories and our fabulous Finsand family fun! I know my mom will be waiting for you with hugs, comfort and song! xo
We will miss you
Omar's son Jeff has been a friend since we were kids. Over the last few years, I have gotten to know Omar and Lucy. Our dialogue touched many subjects and it was always filled with good banter, laughter and smiles. Omar, you will be missed by many. You have left a wonderful legacy for all who knew you.
When i was 10years old Myrtal,Ken, Maureen and Russell came up to Edmonton and picked up Joan and I for a journey to meet our Finsand relations. I met Uncle Omar, Aunt Lucy and cousins and was thrilled to visit the Coulee Dam, which at the time, i understand that he helped build. It was very exciting to have this experience and meet the brother of my father Alfred who i had never met.rip
Have a suggestion for us?
