moderated Re: Passing of O.W. (Oscar) KImsey
When the Augusta area was in my sales territory, I would frequently spend an evening visiting with Oscar. It was invariably an entertaining visit.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Oscar was very generous in allowing the use of many of his photos in my books. In fact, the last time I spoke with him it was regarding the use of some of his material in a book that is currently in the works. He did not hesitate to grant permission to use it.
Yessir. Stand and uncover. Oscar's leaving.

Oscar was such a nice guy to me. This news is not surprising, but it is sad all the same.
Many of you will not get the reference (back from rec.models.railroad usenet days when "Big John" was alive too), but it seems appropriate here:
"Take yer hat off son, that's the Southern going by." And this time, the Southern's carrying "OK", so it's alright if your eyes glisten. We'll blame allergy season.
