I have fond memories of Howard & Rachel bringing the children to my dads store, an admiring the pretty dress Aunt Rachel had made for the girls.Also anotther time Riley was with themwhen they came to our house mom had made a banana pudding . Riley keepp eating it an Rachel said boy arent you going to leave some for someone else. Mom was glad he enjoyed it.
SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. HOWEVER, SHE IS NOW WHERE SHE WANTED TO BE WITH HER SAVIOR AND THOSE GONE ON BEFORE. JUST WAITING FOR THAT GLORIOUS DAY WHEN WE ALL SHALL MEET AGAIN ON HEAVENS GOLDEN SHORE.
I was so sorry to hear of your Mother`s passing. She was a dear, sweet lady. With love and prayers, Mackie cousin, Uncle George`s daughter
My family was truly blessed when Rachel and her family took care of my children, Brian and Beth, when they were small. They always treated them as if they were family. We knew they were safe and loved and never worried about them while they were in Rachel`s care. Although Beth is 35 years old now and has children of her own and Brian passed away at age 22, they always remembered Rachel`s kindness to them. I am sorry for Rachel`s loss to the family. I know she will be greatly missed. Rachel, you have earned your reward. Rest in peace.Ann Rivers

I will miss her terribly. She treated like her very own daughter. I always carry her in my heart! Rest in peace,my sweet mother in law!
