I will never forget Easter Mass with the whole Linsley family, when Scott and I were visiting, I felt so welcomed by all, and immediately fell in love with Mom and Dad, and the "little ones" ...everyone was dressed up, we were all in a happy mood, on a beautiful day. One thing that left a real impression was the togetherness with the family, which seemed to be the pattern. The bantering, the laughter, and the love were all absolutely palpable. I hope all your fond memories will bring you comfort in this time of mourning. God Bless.

Memory of Uncle Doug. The best memory I have is when I was very little. Uncle Doug was driving me and I believe it was Meg. We were in the front seat and Meg was in the middle. Going down a long straight road, I could see that we were coming up to a "T" intersection. Uncle Doug said, "Press the brake Ricky, press the brake!" I looked down at my feet and I didn't have a brake pedal as my uncle did, I didn't have any pedals at all. We were getting closer to the end of the road. "Press the brake Ricky!". I looked down and pressed the imaginary brake pedal. I looked up and the vehicle was slowing and finally stopped! With praises, Uncle Doug turned directions and soon we came to another intersection. Again he told me, "Ricky, press the brake". With more confidence I stomped on my brake and the vehicle came to a stop. I don't know how much longer Uncle Doug kept this up, my guess a couple more times. As innocent as I was as a child some many years ago, I knew I was loved whenever I was with my Uncle Doug. RIP
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

You have moved on now, trusting care for your family in the hands of your children. Without words, you still lead by example and provide the footsteps for me to follow. Nurture, love, support, provide, and offer a moral guidance for the generations here as well as the generations to come. Keep my individuality and share the memories of generations past. For these memories are what is important and how we know you continue to live in our hearts, just as the generations before you still live in your heart. I will do as you ask, carry on the torch until it is time to pass on the flame yet again. I will remember the good times most of all, and learn from the struggles we had, imparting that knowledge with all I meet, for knowledge is nothing if it is not shared. Be at peace now Dad. I will speak to you in my dreams.

Meg, your dad was and is a special kind of unique and always gave me good advice in subtle hints ........most importantly he was a connoisseur of great legs!
Meg left a message on October 16, 2014:
Letting Go God saw you getting tired. When a cure was not to be, He closed his arms around you and whispered, "Come to Me". In tears we saw you sinking. We watched you fade away. Our hearts were almost broken, you fought so hard to stay. But when we saw you sleeping so peacefully free from pain, We could not wish you back to suffer so again. So keep your arms around him Lord, and give him special care. Make up for all he suffered and all that seemed unfair

I remember Mr. Linsley always treating me nicely, and was incredibly supportive when I was going through my divorce. He was one of the main reasons that Maria and I were able to move back to New Jersey. He wrote a job offer for our judge that sealed the deal. I will be forever grateful for that generous act of kindness
