Dr Carl

Me, Dr Carl Hastings, Jean Hastings, and Sean

This is a picture we took while on our trip to Lake of the Ozarks. This man is remarkable. He is the head researcher at Reliv. We are so fortunate to have him. You are probably familiar with much of his previous work. He was with Mead-Johnson and was involved with creating Similac, Infamil and Ensure. He also was instrumental in helping Weight Watchers create their frozen foods that are now sold in grocery stores.

He has created 5 different Reliv products that have received US food patents. The US has only awarded 12 food patents ever and Reliv has 6 of those. Back to Carl: I was amazed at his humble, kind spirit. If you met him on the street, you would never dream he comes with all those impressive credentials. He is just a down to earth guy. Jean, his wife, was so sweet. She shared with my friend, Kara, that she and Carl have known each other since they were 8 years old. Isn't that sweet?

This picture was taken the first night we were in Missouri. It is my cell phone, so please forgive the fuzziness. We were two of 180 people they talked to that night. A few nights later when we saw them again, I reintroduced myself. Dr Carl said, "I know, I met you the other night." I guess he thought I had not remembered!! That amazed me - just the warmth and care they showed for each of us. I am so blessed to be a part of this company!!

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added
I get several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
