Suraj Holzwarth lost her daughter, Sierra Parker, 10 months ago to the disease of alcoholism. Last week at Seeds of Change here in Anchorage, she held a posthumous art exhibit of her daughter’s large body of work, called 'Sierra's Designs', to remember and honor her contribution to life, and to raise money for Seeds of Change, an organization dedicated to helping young adults develop the skills to be successful adults. Nothing can replace the pain of losing a child, but the event was filled with friends and collegues, punctuated with lots of hugs and Suraj's Daugher, Sierra Parker, art work. Suraj says she wants to bring awareness to younger people that alcoholism just isn't the disease of older people.
