I have a sad task this morning...the funeral of a young man who Emily knows. His mom was her case manager years ago and she always wanted them to be friends. He did take her out to a dance once and danced with her when he d jayed SO dances. He did not have DS and was probably LD. Shane worked at Albertsons for years and even though he was a big guy he was shy. It was fun because no matter WHO was bagging my things, the next time I would look up...Shane had taken over. When he realized I recognized him a huge smile would slowly spread across his face. He was someone who had enough disability to label him disabled but was capable enough to recognize the exclusion. His mom said the isolation of the past few years was pretty hard on him. He passed away in his sleep Sunday from an aneurysm...so join me today in thinking of his family , please.
