 Heeding Has Lost a Great Friend

I'm sorry to report that Heeding's great and dear friend Joe Davis died last weekend. 

You can read his obituary and see a wonderful photo of Joe at:

Any of you who ever attended any Heeding event will remember Joe in his wheelchair, a vision of peacefulness on his face.  He worked hard with us and others to make Philadelphia neighborhoods safer from gun violence.  He will be sorely missed.  May God hold him in his palm.

Best,
Bryan
