In response to the overwhelming offers of support for the family of Dodgers scout John Green, the club today created an email address where family, friends and members of the community can share their thoughts and feelings on the tragic passing of Christina Taylor Green. Those memories, thoughts and condolences, which can be sent to greenfamily@dodgers.com, will be compiled in a memorial book for the family.

Letters can be sent via mail to: Dodger Stadium, c/o the Green Family, 1000 Elysian Park Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90090.

Christina was one of six people killed over the weekend when a gunman fired at U.S. congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’s ”Congress on Your Corner” meeting.

John Green and his family — which includes his father, Dallas Green, the former Phillies manager — have also created a charitable memorial fund to honor the life and memory of Christina, which will be held by the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona.

“Our family has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love for our sweet Christina,” said Green. “This memorial fund will ensure her legacy for the children in our community.”

Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Christina Taylor Green may do so by logging on to the website of the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona at www.cfsoaz.org and clicking on the link to the Christina Taylor Green Memorial Fund. They can also contact the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona by email at christinataylorgreenmemorial@cfsoaz.org, or by calling (520) 545-0313.

Checks may be sent to: The Community Foundation for Southern Arizona in Memory of Christina Taylor Green, 2250 E. Broadway Boulevard, Tucson, AZ 85719

A public memorial service for Christina is scheduled for Thursday at 1 p.m. at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Tucson.
