Our hearts are heavy today however we are at peace because we believe in Him and our hearts are warmed knowing that Omer also believed in Him. Omer shared with us that Mary, the mother of God, was his favorite. Mary please welcome O.G. home. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen. May you rest in eternal peace Omer but don't forget....keep on dancing, smiling and bringing happiness to those around you!

I only knew OG from the American Legion Post 37 in Hooksett, NH. He had a sweet personality and brought me joy whenever I saw him. When I hear his name, I immediately see him in my mind, dancing around the canteen and being joyful. This man understood happiness and was always ready to share his happiness with anyone who took time to chat with him. Wish more people were like you. God rest your soul.
