Guest Book Highlights

January 17, 2018 "I have grown up watching the Sox, and although I am way too young to have watched him play, I know the greats by name as a fan. Had the opportunity to meet Don and he was the nicest guy around. Thank you for inviting me to the funeral. I was unable to attend sadly but I will always remember the kindness you showed by sending me the invite. I'm sorry for your loss but he will forever live in the hearts of every Red Sox fan, young and old. Goodbye Silent Captain, God speed.
Marti- Eugene, OR." - Marti Deanda (Springfield, OR)
December 04, 2017 "I would like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. He will be remembered for his talent on the baseball field. May you find comfort and help in God during this time of sorrow." - (Bear, DE)
November 26, 2017 "I saw Bobby Doerr play in Chicago and St. Louis. In a950 I witnessed a double header in which the Red Sox won both games and moved into first place. The second game lasted sixteen innings. Doerr's defensive play was outstanding; time after time he turned potential rbi hits into outs. I called him after his wife died;Itold him I had seen that
double header, and he remembered that night.
He remembered making one play in which he moved to this left, cleanly scooped up a smash by Jim Busby and threw out the speedy runner on close play. We both seemed to enjoy the memory. I later attended a baseball card show, and introduced myself as he signed my copy of The Teammates. Bobby was classy both on and off the diamond. I am 81 years old and he was still my hero."
November 22, 2017 "My heartfelt condolences and prayers for the Doerr's family. May Almighty God in his infinite wisdom grant solace during this most challenging time. Bobby was truly a talented and compassionate man of integrity. We will always remember his fine legacy. We will all miss Bobby very much. With Love & Prayers" - A Caring Neighbor
November 22, 2017 "I'm writing for 2 men from Junction City, both have passed away. They both always had good words to say about Bobby Doerr and thought highly of him. The first man was my Dad, Holger Jensen, City Recorder of Junction City, he always enjoyed it when Mr. Doerr came into his office or he just saw him around town, my Dad always talked very highly of Bobby, a Christian man and a friend to Many. The second man I am writing for is Dr. Clifford Matson, I was talking to his daughter recently and she asked me to include his thoughts of Mr. Doerr. A wonderful, kind man and a Christian man. All 3 had this in common, kindness, fair men and all Christians. Junction City has lost their Baseball Hero, but I'm sure these 3 men will meet and have a great talk when meeting in Heaven." - Elaine Howell (Eugene, OR)
