This article from Time.com highlights various findings that show why spending face-to-face quality time with friends is so essential for a person's overall happiness and well-being.

Meet The Joseph Groh Foundation ...
 
On Father’s Day 2008, following a day spent with family, HVAC industry veteran Joe Groh went for a bike ride along the trails of Lake Grapevine, Texas. The trail he was riding on took a sharp left turn, where Joe’s mountain bike slid on sand and off the trail. Joe was thrown headfirst over the handlebars, breaking his neck and damaging his spinal cord, resulting in quadriplegia below that level.

Knowing that life had suddenly and unalterably changed -- Joe vowed to never look back, to never give up, and to remain positive.
The Joseph Groh Foundation was established -- as Joe's way of giving back to the construction trades industry. It serves as a clearinghouse of information for those with spinal cord injuries, encourages companies to provide short and long-term disability insurance, and financially assists those with a connection to the construction trades industry who are living with a life-altering injury or illness.
