Rachel Ristau, who turns 17 this month, has found a way to help others cope with what she went through. She is creating a “memory garden” outside the Fayetteville Senior Center. The garden is designed to help people who’ve lost a loved one commemorate and remember that person. She’s doing it in honor of her dad, Michael Ristau, who died of liver cancer.

Several companies have donated in-kind services to her garden, including Dalpos Architects, Hueber-Breuer Construction Co. and O’Brien & Gere. She’s also received about $200 in donations.
