Our mother was an optimist, some would call her a visionary always searching for ways to help people through nutrition, spirituality and holistic medicine. She lived her life on her terms pursuing what she believed in. She was impulsive often unconventional, but also adventurous and courageous. Ultimately her life long quest was to help others!
