  1. That is a great quote. I think the same about it. Giving your best at all times is a thank you for the gift we received.

  2. Prefontaine is buried at Sunset Memorial Park in Coos Bay.

    A day after his funeral in Coos Bay, a memorial service at Hayward Field in Eugene drew thousands. How sad he had his life cut short.

  3. That is so sweet. Thank you. Kris.
