I am so sorry to hear the news of my friend. Once when he found out that I had a picture of his brother Denver he came to my house to see it. He told me that was not Denver, because of a mix up, it was a picture of him. He was a nice visitor and became a friend. My condolences to the family. I hope you do not mind that I added the photo of which was the topic of our meeting. Doris Aliff, Chesapeake.

I will truly miss Oather. He started at Security America a few months after me. He started with us working at Regatta in 1991. Oather was a good man. He was honest, dependable and a hard worker. I loved to hear his stories. He would always say "I just tell it like it is". He would bring us the prettiest flowers from his garden. He would go to work and then attend to his garden and flowers. I don't know where he got all of his energy. He was also very proud of his son. My thoughts and prayers go out to his son and his family.

Prayers are with all of Oather's loved ones. They don't make them like Oather anymore. We will miss Oather at Security America. I will always remember him teaching me how to play horseshoes at our company picnics. Thanks for everything he did for our company and our community.
