It has been almost a year since his passing and I miss him dearly. When Oscar and I were young, he spent the night at our ranch north of San Manuel and as we stared at the stars at night he said "if you write NASA they have to send you pictures". Little did he know that after he left, this ranch kid with nothing better to do, wrote NASA 2 letters a month for 3 years and I recieved a lot of pictures from space, Gemini, and Apollo. The last time we went out after we got home he showed me his latest craze, flashlights. He compared the brightness of the flashlights now with the LED light and the size of them. The smallest light he had was also the brightest, Just like him. God love you Oscar, you will be with me always.

Oscar lived life with "gusto". Knowing him has had an impact on my life. Oscar lived a life fuller than many twice his age. We can all learn from this, though many can only dream of achieving what he has accomplished. We mourn our loss, but, we are comforted by knowing he has done so much good. Oscar always bathed us with a warm glow of happiness, even during the most difficult times. I take comfort in having known him. It was both an honor and pleasure.

Dora, and the Cardenas Family . Oscar will be missed. He was a friend to all. Having grown up with Oscars friendship was a blessing. He was the brother I never had. We shared such special childhood experiences. Obstacles were never an issue to him. He became an Aggie and began his successful carrier. He then married Dora a beautiful person. I then gained a sister. They shared nineteen beautiful years of happiness. Due to this happiness, his will to live became stronger. On the day of Our Lady Fatima he was called to heaven. He passed away but is in one of the best places one can ever be. Oscar you are missed, but we will all see you soon. God bless you my brother. Octavio "TAB" Castaneda

With heavey hearts we offer this Prayer for the elavation of beloved Oscar's soul:

"O my God! O my God! Verily, thy servant, humble before the majesty of Thy divine supremacy, lowly at the door of Thy oneness, hath believed in Thee and in Thy verses, hath testified to Thy word, hath been enkindled with the fire of Thy love, hath been immersed in the depths of the ocean of Thy knowledge, hath been attracted by Thy breezes, hath relied upon Thee, hath turned his face to Thee, hath offered his supplications to Thee, and hath been assured of Thy pardon and forgiveness. He hath abandoned this mortal life and hath flown to the kingdom of immortality, yearning for the favor of meeting Thee.

O Lord, glorify his station, shelter him under the pavilion of Thy supreme mercy, cause him to enter Thy glorious paradise, and perpetuate his existence in Thine exalted rose garden, that he may plunge into the sea of light in the world of mysteries.

Verily, Thou art the Generous, the Powerful, the Forgiver and the Bestower"

Oscar was one of the most positive and gifted people I've ever known. He ignored his challenges, loved life and made things happen. You could not help but be inspired by his positive spirit and how he lived his life as a witness to his faith. Oscar was my hero. I'm proud to call him friend.

Cardenas Family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I met Oscar many years ago(1990), by my previous employer Tab Castaneda and my sister Monica Naranjo. He was such a wonderful, funny and inspirational person. He will be greatly missed.

My deepest regret is not spending time with you to discover your inspiration and enthusiam which I'm sure were a direct gift from God. I know Darda and Ruben has some influence on your tremendous accomplishments also. They were always so proud of you as we all were in this wonderful family.

May you and Lamar today find solace in Heaven and pray for us who loved you all our lives.

You were the best uncle a girl could ask for, the world lost a bit of the good it had left when it lost you. We'll love and miss you forever tio.

My prayers go out to the Cardenas family. I had the privilege of seeing Oscar just about daily at work. He was one of the best bosses I have had. He would stroll into work in his chair and would go by each employee work station simply to make eye contact and to say a Hello followed by his smile. His gesture made us proud and honored to work for him. He was an awesome boss and we will greatly miss his strolls into the office. He definitely impacted my life and help me understand family comes first even in a work place. Our prayers are now for his family and God will provide comfort. Heaven gained and Angel of that I am sure.
May 16, 2011
Tios Darda & Ruben, just to let you know how proud we are to be Oscar's cousins, a great human being that taught us the greatest lesson of life, that everything is possible, that his love for life and his friendly smile will always be in our hearts and our memories. On behalf of all of Oscar´s cousins from Monterrey Mx, we love you, Dora, Carlos and Diana, God bless you all.
May 16, 2011
Dora, I am so sorry to hear about Oscar. The words "I can't" were never in his vocabulary. I'm sure he and Leon are talking medical "mumbo-jumbo". My thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your family at this very difficult time.

Oscar was my first patient when I was a student nurse 18 years ago and I remember his patience and kindness even when he wasn't feeling well. I recently had the honor of caring for him again and again, he was wonderful. It was awesome to visit with him and feel his wonderful spirit and love of life. What a trememdous influence he has been on so, so many people. Oscar, thank you for the lessons you taught me and may you rest in peace in your home with God without pain or physical limitations, you will be missed.
May 16, 2011
My sympathies to the Cardenas Family, I got to meet Oscar many times I alalways was full of energy, as a son to a paralyzed mother, I understood his well being and I was so inspired by his accomplishments, and his great character. Nothing stopped him from doing anything or getting things done. He will always be a great inspiration to me and my family.. May God Bless Him And His Family.. My Prayers
May 16, 2011
My sympathy and prayers are with the Cardenas family. I went to high school with Oscar and really only knew him for one semester (spanish) but I remember that he was the nicest guy you could ever meet. Whenever he would see me, in later years, he would always say hi and ask how I was doing and that made me feel so SPECIAL.

I'm looking forward to seeing you again in heaven!

Simeon, a Godly man who longed to see Jesus, got the desire of his heart. He was faithful and ready (and so was Oscar).

I called him one day, in 1994, and told him I had a student who needed a mentor....and he gave me advice and information. Interestingly, the lesson the student learned was that sometimes brick walls are nothing more than rice paper....my hope is that the student pushed thru his walls as Oscar Cardenas had done....no wheelchairs in heaven...he and Victor Alvarez are dancing!
