George Downey, my dad, would have been 82 today, he left us in 1970 at a very young age of 42. He would have been proud and loved all of his offspring!!! For 12 years I shared my birthday cake with him, at the time "feeling a little jipped" ~ how I wish I could still be sharing my cake with Dad. We've been blessed with an amazing step father, and mom a wonderful husband. Hard to believe 40 years has past without him, makes "memorial day" even more meaningful.
