    We are so sorry to hear about Mrs. Oman’s passing. Discussing travels with her was always a pleasure. She was so enthusiastic, especially about her trips to Italy. She gave us so many good tips on buses, trains and small pleasant hotels. Our sincere condolences to all her family.

    Sincere sympathy to Marie, Delores and families on the recent passing of your mother/grandmother Gwen. My memories of Gwen are of a smart, knowledgable woman whose passions in life were her family and her many travels. She truly lived her life her way.
    Our mother is close to us,
    We hear her voice forever.
