“Be the love…written on three fingers!!! That was one of your many mantras, you were just that on your best days!
Like and loved by so many, your plethora of friends you made along your adventurous journey…what a gift you had to be able to connect with anyone…you may not even have known it, but you made people better. You could talk about anything as it related to life…ranging from the most basic topics like a simple kombucha recipe, to the injustice of those in concentration camps…You had a true hippie soul, mad genius too.
A gentle spirit, creative, intelligent, and talented, just a few of your many ways. That’s how those who loved you will remember you.
You lived your life one foot in reality and the other on the wild side pushing the limits, pushing your own limits. So unafraid and unphased and unapologetic to public opinion.
You left a lot behind, and who knows if you ever felt deserving of all you had but you were. May you rest easy and cheers to baking the world.”
