First met PJ in SNET phone store, couldn't miss him. He was a delightful gentleman with a big smile. We met again when the world special olympics came to New Haven. He was a blessing to the young people he worked with. So sorry to see of his passing. Although you're sad now, you had him for so long in your lives. God Bless.

Big Pegues
Growing up in Institute and watching you play ball at State are timeless memories for me. However hard you played under the boards was overshadowed by that great smile and humble spirit.
