A book about Joe

Sister and guardian of Aptiv participant of Joe, Sandra Bartel, has published a book about her experiences with Joe. 

Born with Down Syndrome in the 1960s, Joe was cared for by his parents until his sister, Sandra, became his legal guardian when their parents' health declined. 

The book was written from her perspective, from her memories, as well as notes from Joe’s teachers, his football coach, his baby book entries, and other stories Sandra has been collecting for dozens of years.
