Joe Weider – my friend, my rock

My sister, Cameo and I went to see Joe Weider today. We hadn’t seen him in a long time. He looked so handsome. He was strong, healthy, happy and as vibrant as ever. What an amazing man to have created such an empire in the publication industry, and through the spreading of his research of nutrition and exercise, he created the very business of Health and Fitness.

I have always given such great thanks and appreciation for Joe as our leader – the true hero of our sport. But even more importantly he is my friend, a man I can always count on and trust; a man I honor and whose friendship I so value; a man I will always love in my heart and soul forever and ever. He is like a dad to Camy and I. Joe has picked me up when I was down, been at my side at my greatest of moments, helped me in personal relationships, advised me in business and let me cry on his shoulder… a number of times. He is my rock – always has been, always will be. I am so lucky to have Mr. Weider in my life.

Thank you, Joe.

    I am moving to a brand new school here in the desert next fall. I’d love to start the year right with a special guest speaker. Something that will get these kids on the road to a fit lifestyle… as opposed to the Michelin bodies I see stuffed into jeans wandering the malls nowdays … Interested???

    I had a fun chance meeting with Joe Weider a few years back while serving on the California Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sport… those on the Board included Arnold (Chair), Jack LaLanne, Bruce Jenner, ect.. Great ambassadors!!

    Take care and we will stay in touch … Brian

    Hi Cory

    How are you doing. I just send your sister Cameo a message via Facebook. You are both such lovely and nice ladies. It is your personality that makes you nice, not your titles.

    Nice to hear that Cameo plays tennis as I am a vivid tennis player.

    Berry de Mey speaks high of you here in the Netherlands.

    I used to live in Libertyville, Illinois, not far from Racine, but now I live in the Netherlands at 2 km from the German border.

    I am a 38 year old male that is into bodybuilding/fitness. I love working out. When I started out in 1988 you were name of the game in Ms Olympia.

    I read some articles about you in fitness magazines over the years. Greetings to your family and the dogs.

    And do not forget to say hi to Cameo.

    Keep working out and always do your utmost best.
