Remembering Epiphyllum Oxypetalum of Ann Arbor

In English, a child is called by the doting father “the apple of my eye.”
In Chinese, a girl is called by her parents “the pearl in the palms.”
In English, a rare bright light darting across the evening sky is called “a meteor” or “a shooting star.”
In Chinese, “Night-blooming Cereus” or “Princess of the Night” is called “tan hua” (曇花). (See Note)
In English, she was called Rachel.
In Chinese, she was called Ling.
She was more than a meteor, a shooting star, and a tan hua, for she thrived during the day, on soccer fields and in schools where her classmates miss her kindness and sense of humor.

Note: The evening blooms are so rare that impromptu parties are organized for all neighbors to celebrate the splendor and the fragrance for a few hours. See also>

Rachel was one of my 4th grade students. She was one of those kids you don’t forget. She was so outgoing, funny, and smart! It breaks my heart to know that she is gone.

I still remember the first time I met Rachel in my Chemistry class. The group we were a part of was truly unique, and there was never a dull moment when the six of us were together. From all the jokes about Colin's car to the impossible physics questions second semester, Rachel was always there with a clever one-liner or an encouraging word so we'd get more "done." She was truly a great friend, and never failed to make me laugh or smile when I was around her. The memories we shared still make me smile, and I'm so grateful to have known her these past three years. I'll miss having her here.

Loss of words. We were really good friends. Rachel was very honest and straight forward, yet such a joy. Countless laughs.... I miss Rachel and all I can do now is pray for her family. Although I lost a friend they lost something in themselves that can’t be replaced and that’s the love Rachel brought to them.

I first met Rachel in eighth grade and was immediately struck by her wonderful sense of humor. Rachel was a kind, funny, and positive person who had the ability to make anyone laugh, and I will really miss her.

I met Rachel my freshman year of high school. She was one of the first people that made me feel welcome and I really appreciated having her as a friend. Even though we weren't super close Rachel was a good friend to me and I always enjoyed being around her. I will really miss her friendship.

Our son Tyler first met Rachel when they were Freshmen at Huron in Band as they both played saxophone and sat very close to one another. They soon learned they had mutual friends in common and became close friends throughout the years. Rachel showed us to be a very kind and thoughtful. She was smart, kind, fun, athletic, and social with so many people. So many positive traits of what we all should strive to be. Tyler enjoyed his many outings with Rachel and the mini group of friends they went out with. Thank you for being a positive light Rachel to all of your friends and family.
We will greatly miss you coming over to our house and being part of so many fun outings. Most recently I know Rachel, the Twin Towers, and T went to Lake Michigan together. They had an amazing day and so many fun memories.
Our condolences to your family and may you rest in peace. You were an amazing friend to Tyler

I remember Rachel from her time at Clague Middle School when she played saxophone in the band. She was a wonderful and caring person. My deepest sympathy to her family, friends and to all who knew her.

I've known Rachel since freshman year and she's been nothing but caring to me and caring to everyone she knew. I truly don't think I would be the same person I am today had it not been for her. I will really miss her along with everything we shared.

I’m so sad to lose a good friend, I’ve known Rachel since our sophomore math class together, and will truly miss her friendship.
