Visited with Joe Sharkey '11 Brown University this morning. Joe has made great progress over the past 2 weeks. He recognized me the second I walked in. Gave a strong and long handshake. He has been expressing himself through handshakes lately. Joe and I had good moments sharing a few brief verbal exchanges.
