Reader enjoyed Oscar's writing

   I don't think the word "enjoy" is right to describe an article that announces someone's death, but that's all I can think of.

   Your article on Oscar Roloff [March 22, 1999] was really thoughtfully written. Thanks for the additional insight to the guy who has entertained us for years.

   Since I noticed his articles in the paper, I have thought that I should visit with Oscar. We shared some experiences--several wars apart--and I thought it might be interesting to compare the circumstances that had us both swimming in the Pacific in the service of the U.S. Navy.

   Well, now I will have to wait a bit to meet Oscar. Thanks again; I really did enjoy reading your article.
