Dad, Jill and I at my wedding linda dowling

I am the first born so my memories go way back.:) When I was young and he lived with our Mom (Pre divorce and 5 years after) he was very much a very wonderful Dad to me and my sister Jill. And we have a LOT of great memories especially with the grandparents and Dad. My Dad was always on some adventure - whether it was traveling, cycling, taking a class and much more.

I only wish we had been included and could have shared a lot more memorable holidays, trips, birthdays and simply being together more so these past 4 decades of time.

I will always cherish the good times that we did have; I have always felt very close to my Dad and I know he felt the same.

We will miss you Dad! Love You Linda

P:S: My husband Joe was not mentioned so i would like you all to know of him too as part of our family. He is a good guy and had some wonderful times and conversations with Dad about the latest technology, business ventures, airplanes and beyond!
