We're talking about Jennifer Dowdle (Marcy) and today is her "sweet spot" birthday!
So as you make your 40th orbit around the sun, let’s take a moment to acknowledge (aside from entering a new category of old) and celebrate all the things you’ve become! From small beginnings in Grande Prairie, you made it through the challenging gauntlet of your youth (picking up a black belt along the way), spread your wings to the big city [Edmonton] for higher learning and became a master at your craft.
You answered the call of your soul and pursued a passion for science and found a willing partner (what luck it happened in your own workplace) to build such an enriching life in Edmonton, with two beautiful carbon based beings, whom I’m proud to be an Uncle to.
These are some clippings to highlight these events – what a life worth living!
Here’s to the next 40 years of memories. I look forward to making many of them together, along with our families. I’ll be watching the rest with awe and admiration.
Happy Birthday and I love you!
Your Brother, Geoff
Special thanks to my wonderful wife Wendy for her help on this project and my parents for helping me assemble photos to help celebrate and all of you who supplied photos and comments.
