Rest in peace, power and light, @AccessibleJoe (Joseph O’Connor)

You made the accessibility community as a whole a better, stronger place, and for me at least, you were and are the patriarch of the WordPress Accessibility Team. You helped make it a family, and more importantly, you taught me more things that had nothing to do with the technical aspects of web accessibility than I can enumerate.

Thank you for being the person you were and are and always will be, and when my time comes to enter the World to Come, I hope to be able to report to you that every battle for the rights of people like your beloved daughter has been fought and won.
