Life Stories

We met Ray and Joanie at our, and the, ir first New Year Celebration in California at the Covina Bowl. We remained a "best friends" foursome for many years until we moved to Long Beach. Even then, we kept in touch and met occasionally for dinner. I remember when Ray first purchased their manufacturing building and he hired me to remodel his office. He would take the whole office staff to lunch and it was so much fun. Joanie is one of the most caring person I have ever met and I cherish the fond memories I have of our longtime friendship with the Dowling Family. I was honored to be Andy's Godmother and I hope to visit him and the family soon at the South Coast Plaza Restaurant where Andy works..
