Rachel from the first time I met you many years ago you always made me feel welcomed. I've had the pleasure of being able to spend time with all of your family. From countless parties, holidays or just hanging out at Ralphie's house. One of my favorite memories was a karaoke night at Ralphie and Diana's house. I was sitting next to you hearing Ralph sing. When he was done you were clapping and looked over at me. You noticed that I wasnt. So you gave me a little nudge with your elbow. Of course I did what anyone else would do, I starting clapping too! I loved watching your face as you would listen to them sing. I could see the admiration and love you had for your husband and boys. Your love for them was unconditional! Rachel, I will miss your beautiful smile, little giggling laugh and most of all your nudges. I will forever be thankful for being a part of your life. Thank you for the beautiful memories that I will forever cherish. Till we meet again. Love you Rachel ❤

Mom

I'm Rachel's 3rd born and her baby. Mom there's so much I can say about you I don't know where to start. I could tell everyone how you were always there for on every grade school field trip, every awards ceremony or I could say how you would never get caught in public if you didn't look your absolute best. We better not dare to invite anyone over either if your house wasn't spotless and you had painted your face and perfectly placed every strand of hair where you wanted it. I can still here your yelling at me to get up for school or work because it was already 7:30 and for us being late was unacceptable. You were there for me to cry on whenever my heart got broken. There's nothing you didn't know about me even if it was to graphic or in appropriate. You were the best wingman, you would ask your nurses or the cute girl at the register if they were single? If they were you would tell them about this handsome son of yours. There's isn't anything you wouldn't do to get me what I wanted as long as I had a 3.0 GPA. I could go on and on about you but I think everyone knows how amazing you are. What you leave behind will never ever be forgotten. You are and always will be our honey badger, best friend, alarm clock, taxi, ATM, wingman and most importantly our mom. I love you so much and miss you so much. Till we meet again............ Son #3 your baby.

Thank you aunt Rachel for opening your home and being like a second mom to me. Growing up, I remember always wanting to be with you. Whether it was at the post office, making deliveries in Biola, or playing Gin Rummy on a Sunday. I will forever cherish the memories I have with you. I love you and will miss you dearly. 💜

Aunt Rachel, thank you for showing me that it was ok to speak my mind, ok to be proud of who I was, spider legs and all. We didn’t always agree but that was ok. We always figured it out. We butted heads so much because we were so much alike. My Mom and you used to joke that I was more like you than her, no filter but an even bigger heart that was hidden from the world. I will miss your louder than life voice, your laugh and that sly, mischievous smile you always had. I will miss that mean face you gave that inspired me to perfect my own. More than anything I will miss you. We will always be missing you. This world will never be the same without you but will always be a better place for having you in it.
Love always,
Spider Legs

My cousin Rachel was a very beautiful woman with a beautiful smile that would just light up every room. She had gorgeous hair that was always in place she always looked like she had just walked off a movie set and she had a mischievous giggle that would always make you wonder what she was thinking or what she was up to. Rachel was such a wonderful person with a enormous heart. A memory that I have is every year she would always call me to let me know her apricot tree was ready if I wanted to go pick some , she was a sweet heart. I will always remember and miss her dearly 💕

When I started dating your adopted son, I called the house and said “Is Oscar there”? Your response was “when you call my house, you say Hi Rachel!” From that day, we shared a giggle every time I called the house because my first words were always, “Hi Rachel” You and Ralph were such amazing parents and friends. We cherished every moment we had with you. The endless screams because everything scared you and especially your laugh. It was one of a kind as were you. Watching you do your hair to cooking meals to being there for Oscars college graduation, you are so cherished! Until we meet again, mom!

Thank you for always being a wonderful mother in law. My favorite memory was when Eddie & I lived with you and Ralph. I loved staying up with you eating ice cream and Zingers and watching your favorite tv shows like American Idol or Dancing with the Stars. You were not just my mother in law but my friend and I am truly going to miss you. I wish we had more time together but I know you are in a better place now. Until we meet again my friend ❤️ I love you Rachel.
