Leftovers Go Green

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/health/article/leftovers_go_green_20031128

Eight years ago, when my father's Parkinson's symptoms overwhelmed his body, but not his spirit, my mother decided she needed care-taking help. For a man who cherished his independence so fiercely, this life change would not come easy. But with same courage it took to run a profitable textile engineering business for 45 years without a high-school diploma, he accepted his reality and his need for Liz. My mother hired Liz for four days a week shortly after she moved from San Francisco to Atlanta. And each day she came through their front door carrying her supplies and her faith. It didn't take long for my mom to discover Liz was an excellent cook and ask her to prepare many family favorites.
