His love for dogs, bowling, and playing Minecraft, and Pokemon Go, were some ways he was able to connect with people. His disabilities did not stop him from reaching out and making others feel important. With his involvement in Special Olympics, wheelchair basketball, and travels around, it was easy for him to strike up a conversation with anyone. No one was a stranger. He found away to find common ground.
Hope you’re being good Joe. I know, I know “No promises”.
