Dear Joy,
What a wonderful and kind man Doug was. Doug and my father, Earl Lennon, were friends and colleagues for many years. In all the time they knew each other my father spoke almost reverently of the skill Doug had as an umpire - Doug. never made a bad call! He was the rarest of men, managing his career and sharing with the world an indomitable unforgettable smile I hope that he and Dad are calling balls and strikes in Heaven.

Hi Joy,

This is the 3rd time I've tried to send this note of condolence and hopefully THIS ONE will get thru. I am not a digital whiz.
Diane and I were saddened to hear of Doug's passing and we both had the utmost respect for him. We always enjoyed seeing you both at off-season baseball functions in the San Diego area an Diane always enjoyed talking with you.
My former Padres roommate catcher Bob Barton passed two days after Doug and I can only imagine the conversation...
