Edmontonians have long been aware of Joey Moss…I’ll go ahead and say it’s been a dream of mine to meet the man, whom I consider a hero. Another one of my heroes happens to be “The Great One” himself, Wayne Gretzky.
An article in the upcoming issue of People magazine details the relationship between the two, after meeting in 1981, and dives into some of the charity work that Wayne continues to do here in Edmonton with little to no publicity.
“Pretty much from the day I met him I was conscious that I wanted to make sure he was taken care of,” Gretzky tells PEOPLE.
Every time I think of Joey, I smile…and now every time I think of the work that Wayne has done for those living with developmental disabilities in our community, I will smile!
