    I met Oscar several times at the Grieg Lodge’s Annual Lutefisk Dinner in Portland, Oregon. He was a kind, sweet person and I enjoyed visiting with him each year at the dinner. Since he was hard of hearing, I would mail him an “invoice” for his tickets. He, and his beautiful Norwegian sweater that he would wear to the dinner will be missed this year. My deepest condolences to his family.
