Honoring the Memories of Our Brothers and Sisters

The OPCMIA is a family. We are our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers — and when we lose one of our own, we feel the loss deeply.

On this page, we mourn those who have passed away, we honor their craftsmanship and achievements, we celebrate their lives, and we offer our deepest sympathies to their spouses, siblings, children, grandchildren, and other family and friends.
