This week our community lost not one, but two individuals. Both passed away before their time. It’s a stark reminder that no matter what we do, what we say or what we write, some people will be called early.
One of those individuals was a good friend and colleague from the steel industry. Chaim Taub or Charlie as we knew him, was a kind and warm hearted individual. His generosity among his family and many others was well known. He is blessed with wise and righteous children. And we appreciate the fact that his family brought him back from Florida for a funeral here in Cleveland, where hundreds gathered to hear his deeds of kindness to his family and others.
The other individual was a young women with a large family, stricken with cancer. We hope and pray that her husband and young children have the strength to go on without her kindness and wisdom, and that we are able to help them thru these very difficult times.
Let us not be foolish enough to think that eating a healthier diet will save us from the fate that awaits every one of us. The goal here is to get healthy and be healthy to provide for those around us. Our families, our friends, and indeed those mourning the loss of others. They need our strength as well. I know the healthier I eat, the better I feel, and the more I am able to give of myself, and in the end, getting healthy is something we can all be happy about.
Have a great weekend!
