Philip Gregory Omer ~ Loving Husband,Father,Brother and Friend

As many of you know Audra lost her wonderful father on December 23, 2008. Mr. Omer was a amazing man and loved by everyone whom he came in contact with. He touched the lives of so many. I have put together a slide below so that we can share with everyone a few memories of Mr. Omer. He and Mrs. Nancy proudly adopted Jimmy, a chocolate lab from the Barnwell County Animal Shelter and he also proudly drove and rode with Audra on many transports. He attended every function in SC and supported Audra all the way in everything that she did. She is truly going to miss him, as we all are, and I ask that you all please keep her in your prayers hoping she can somehow find peace and strength.

You will see pictures of him with Mrs. Nancy, Audra, some of his many friends, and even spending time with Audras dogs!!
