To all of Rainell's family. So sorry to hear of your lost. She was a wonderful person to know. I first met her at Nichols where we both worked for a while in the late 60's . We became friends but then lost touch. Met her again when I found out she was a niece of our landlord several years ago. She never changed. Still fun to be around. My heart and prayers are with the family. Trust in the Lord and He'll help you thru the pain of losing someone you loved.
