A Meeting 22 Years in the Making

On Oct. 8, 1991, in Arlington, Texas, the Wolf family was forever changed. Their strong and fierce little PJ rode his bike across the street to ask his best friend to play – but without a helmet that day. He was hit by a car and was rushed to the hospital. The next few days were grueling for the family, but in the end, PJ did not survive his injuries.
