Walter Graham, endearingly known as “Mr. Sunny” decided not to let his medical problems control his life. Depressed from suffering 4 strokes, he decided to make a change not only for himself, but for his community. In a previous post, “Envisioning A Healthy, Vibrant Wilmington” we highlighted how nature can help fight the symptoms of depression.
