    Big o! You will truly be missed by Jj and I… I will never forget everything you ever did for me! Cool me breakfast lunch and dinner every single day that was some bomb ass food! You were nothing but good to me Omar all the time I will really miss talking to you! Jj will forever keep you in his heart. He’s too young to understand but he did say he will talk to you later and that he thinks about you when he goes outside in school! We love you sooo much! You were a great father in law to me and I can’t ever say anything but good things about you! You are now resting and in a better place. Jj loves you so much Omar!

    My most sincere condolences to the Salinas family. Omar will surely be missed by all of his friends and family. Omar was one of my first friends that I met when we arrived in Houston, Texas back in 1974. Although I couldn’t speak english and his spanish was not too good we both managed to understand each other. I always thought of Omar as a gentle giant, when we use to play football and he would tackle me he always only did enough to stop me and not hurt me. I am sure Omar went straight to heaven. RIP my friend. Jose Lemus

    Omar was a good man. I enjoyed working with him for many years at Cardinal Health. His work saved many lives and eased the pain of others. He will be missed. Gods strength is always with you.
