On behalf of the Capuchin brothers I offer my deepest sympathies on the passing of Oscar. It is truly humbling to receive memorial donations in honor of Oscar's life. Please be assured of the brother's prayers for the entire Kanan family during this great time of grief. May perpetual light shine upon Oscar.

Oscar was a wonderful interesting man -- I will miss our weekly pre-covid dinners at Sam's Club where we solved the world's problems. Rest in peace my friend.
