Oren and I became friends when he would come into CVS to pick up his meds. When he found out I was part of the MacDoo family the talking was non stop. I always asked his wife how he was and make sure to let him know I asked about him. To all the family I will be praying for you.

My heart is sad at the passing of this great guy. Worked with Oren for many years, and he and Oren Jr. put the AC in our home. We used to run into him at Carolina Beach, and he loved to talk about that area. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with the family, and that the world and Bojangle’s–where I saw him last has lost one terrific human being.
