On November 22, 2007 the Victoria Advocate ran an article offering a reward for any information leading up to the conviction of the person that hit my son. Below are some of the comment of the newpaper. The article ran on Thanksgiving morning and had incorrect information. I know not everyone is perfect and this was not intentional but my heart was shattered that morning reading the paper......my son was just another statistic to them. He meant the world to us!

The loss of a child is the most hardest thing that anyone can go threw.I remember seeing OJ and his buddy Alfred walking there pups all the time.OJ was the biggest dog lover that I knew.All of us here on your street miss hearing OJ's kind "Hello's" when he would walk by and his smile will definitely stick in our minds for ever.Lisa,every time I see a tan/beige colored car I wonder if that's the one.I pray that whom ever did this to OJ will come forward and that Justice is served for your family.This has affected our entire neighborhood because we watched him grow up from a young teen to an adult.We Love You Lisa from all of us in the Mayfair Terence subdivision.

Hello my name is Lisa, I am Oscar's mother. First and foremost I would like to thank God for helping our family during this difficult time. I am sure Oscar is watching over us right now. To any mother that has lost I child...you are in my prayers. I would also like to thank everyone who has helped in anyway, we could not do this without you all! It has been very difficult for me to talk about the accident, but I have to be the voice for my son. With God I am overcoming the fear and I am ready to talk. I would like to mention that the date in the article today is incorrect. The date which will forever be in my memory and heart is September the 16th not the 12th, second the friend that was with my son did give a description. I talked to him the day after the accident (and it was in the first article ran). He told me like he told Victoria P.D. that it was a tan/beige car similar to a Grand Prix. I do not know if this will make a difference but anything will help. I do understand that with everyday that passes the odds to finding the person are smaller. The only thing that keeps me going is the faith I have in God. I also would like to note that I do not blame the person for hitting him (accidents do happen)but I blame them for not stopping to render aid. One more thing that I would like to add is that Oscar was survived by two younger brothers that are devasted and scarred for life. They are what keep me going daily...Oscar meant the world to them. To have closure in all this is very difficult and it is hard to answer thier questions. Maybe the person has a concious?????? maybe not???? Someday they will have to face thier sins. May God Bless you all and may we all be grateful to what the Lord has made possible to each an everyone of us! Thanks for listening, Oj's mom
