I was terribly sad when this news crossed my feed this morning. +Joe Philley
was a really nice guy, and I traded many messages with him when #Ingress
was just launching. When I was essentially the lone Enlightened where I live, Joe personally came through with 5 invites to get the Enlightened started in my area, way back in November 2012. Special thanks to +w smiley
(who played Resistance at the time) for the introduction.
I'm glad I got a chance to meet him, thank him in person, and share great times with hundreds of other Ingress players. Though I'm long retired, Ingress will hold a special place in my gaming memory forever, and Joe was the social face of it.
You will be missed, sir. #RIPJoe #RIPJoePhilley
