|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

over how young they were taken. We will see them
again though. May God comfort you in this

|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. |
||Martha & Greg West

|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. |
