My sincerest condolences to Mrs. Dowling, Jeff, & the entire family. Much of my youth was spent at the Dowling's back in the old neighborhood, whether it was playing baseball or football, swimming, skateboarding or watching the Mets. Mr. Dowling was always welcoming and friendly, as was everyone in the family. May all your memories be joyful ones.

I called him Dad, he always made me feel like one of his own. His sense of humor and smile always brought a smile to everyone else around. him. He was a man of God who lived out his belief in love and caring. So many memories or stopping by on my way in or out of OC. Even when my cousin's car got a flat he and one of the boys got there while she was changing it and they somehow snuck their way into fixing it. Mom you know that HE LOVES YOU, and I looke forward to the day we are all together again. My love and thought are with you all while you endure this time of separation. Love the daughter in PA
