  John Matthew Lapointe, 35 years old, from St. Petersburg, FL was born with Down Syndrome, hearing impaired, non-verbal on February 1, 1984.

   John has an infectious smile, angelic sweet gentle spirit and so enjoyed watching Barney cartoons on his tablet. He also enjoyed music, magazines, puzzles, blocks, and riding in the van. He had a mischievous side to his nature and was happy to think he had gotten something over on you. 

   John was a beautiful human being loved by all and will forever be in our hearts.
