I’m sorry to hear of Rachael’s passing. She was among the kindest and most beautiful people I’ve had the privilege of knowing. We had great times in high school and college with wonderful friends. I remember fondly prom night in 1992 and that huge dress! That photo on the steps at the Vista Hotel is a a special memory. Rest In Peace, my friend

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Rachael's passing. My deepest condolences to her family. I'll always remember Rachael as a kind, lovely, upbeat and positive person who laughed often and offered friendship to everyone. She was taken from this world far too soon. RIP, Rachael.

I am so terribly sorry for your loss. I graduated from South with Rachael. She was so sweet and kind. God seems to always take the best of us first unfortunately. I lost a cousin our age last year to breast cancer and It's just hard to get over how young they were taken. We will see them again though. May God comfort you in this difficult time.

Hello. I knew Rachel from the online journaling community and also Weetacon. I considered her a dear friend. She was an extraordinarily kind, loving, funny, and giving person. Once, when I was going through a terrible depression, she sent me a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. I will never forget her kind gesture. We texted frequently, about our lives, and later about her treatments. She was usually very upbeat and positive. She was a beautiful soul and I will miss her so much. My deepest condolences to her family and other friends. I like to believe she’s in a place in which all of her dreams have come true.

Linda & John, I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Rachael's passing. Joetta sent me a message to let me know. I cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. I know your hearts are broken. Rachael was such a sweet girl and she sure did bring a lot of joy and love into Mommy and Daddy's lives when she was a little girl. My heart is aching for you. I cannot imagine how you are feeling. My prayers go up for you. May God bring you comfort during this difficult time. Love - Cathy

We're heartbroken to hear of Rachael's passing. She was a big part of my life throughout high school and beyond. I cherish the memories of traveling up to Penn State Behrend and, later, Cleveland to visit her. Rachael was always steps ahead of all of us when it came to technology. I remember the novelty of her car phone ages before we all had cell phones. Rachael was the first person that I knew who had her own website. We chatted online long before instant messaging or texting was commonplace. Rachael was a kind, talented woman who left us too soon.
