  26. Thanks, Doc (and Eileen) for sharing your family with us. The Booth clan holds a cherished spot in my heart. I am grateful to have known Mr. and Mrs. Booth for so many reasons. My prayers, thoughts and well wishes go out to the Booth family.

  27. He and Ilene’s legacy is in the five gentlemen they raised. Some of the finest to graduate from Conestoga. I had the privilege of coaching and teaching all five and they are the type of men that keeps me in the teaching profession. My thoughts go with all of the members of the Booth family.

  28. Dear Booth family, I’m feel sad to hear that after your Mom/Grandmother now you also had to loose your Dad/Granddad. I felt always welcome in your home in Nebraska and Texas. I enjoyed it very much when he, Dan and Bill came to visit me in Amsterdam and I’ll never forget the fun we had. I wish you all strength in these times. Love, Arno

  29. Dear Bob: Michele passed this along and thus, I wanted to say how sorry I am to hear that your father has passed.

    I remember Dr. Booth so fondly – he was a great man.

    Andrea Richardson

  30. My deepest sympathy for the family. Sadly, we suffer because of Adam and Eve disobedience. But through Jesus death we do have hope. We yearn for the day when sickness is no more. We yearn to see our dear loved ones again. Jesus promised, the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out -John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29. Also Isaiah 33:24 & Job 33:25.

  31. Doc, you will be missed terribly by your family and anyone who knew you. You and Ilene raised just a great family! The Padgets are so glad we got to know all of you. Our sports times with you were always so much fun in Murray! You were a great example of Love of Family & Friends! God Bless Your Family Always
