Most people believe that behind every good man is a good woman. Joe and I had that and more. He was the love of my life since I was 12 years old.
Despite the grief, that will never pass, I have taken the wheel with my son Bill at my side. Together we are the driving force behind the dream that my husband started so many years ago. The best way to honor his legacy is to see Joe’s vision come to fruition. We began this quest together so many years ago “to bring better nutrition to everyone”.
I found a poem of Mother Teresa’s that I have shared with you before, it sums up the way Joe felt and lived his life.
‘Words To Live By’ -By Mother Teresa.
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway. If your are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may just never be enough; Give the world the best that you have anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it’s all between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway.
