To Rachel's love ones. Please accept my sincere condolences. Even though, I know of no words, to rid you of your pain during this most difficult time. May our prayers strengthen us and our memories comfort us. At Isaiah 25:8; 26:19 we look forward to seeing our love ones again as Almighty God, lovingly promises.

I worked with Rachel at Autumn Leaves. She was a shining star of nursing compassion with a heart full of love for her residents. Her spirit of working together drew her coworkers to her as she led by example and demonstrated courage, grit and humor as she persevered through each busy workday while undergoing her own medical treatment. She never ceased to amaze me! I feel blessed to have known Rachel and pray her loving family and friends may find comfort knowing she rests in the arms of the Lord now. She fought for life long and hard, undergoing her complex treatments, with unshakable determination to survive and live basking in the love of all of you. Yet, her time has come to be with Jesus and the angels receive her lovingly and gently and peacefully. Now she lives her Heavenly life. We are all better for having known and loved your loving Rachel. We cry and we grieve. And let us also rejoice and honor her life by how we live and love by her example. May the peace of God be upon all of you her loving family and friends. I offer you my sincere and tender condolences.

She was just the sweetest most beautiful person from the moment I met her. In the most difficult situation life could ask of a thirty year old and still she just beemed with compassion and kindness and thoughts for others. I know she wouldn’t want anyone to be sad on her behalf, and I am trying very hard to find the smiles and the good times through all of this, but she will be missed.

~Let’s remember the smiles~

George and Regina:
We are deeply saddened to hear about Rachel.

We know how hard it is to transition through this stage of life before you are ready to say good-bye, but little by little, you'll remember how Rachel lived and all the beautiful, fun, and awesome memories you'll never forget.

From our family to yours with respect and sympathy
