Rachel was one of Mom's closest friends. I have fond memories of family dinners together and the two of them cracking each other up. They had a long-standing tradition of sending each other insulting birthday cards that always made me laugh. I also recall Rachel playing a vertical viola (the only time I've ever seen it). She was a wonderful musician and a dear friend to all of us. With condolences from Michelle (Talonn) Blechman and family.
