It was our honor to know Sister Rachel. We got the blessing of praying and singing together to our awesome God, even in the mist of her situation. She was a great example of human being and Christian, a strong woman of faith and courage. Choosing to smile and always knowing where she was standing, trusting and leaning on, and that was, Jesus Christ. She conquer her fight, winning Eternal Life.

See you on heaven Sister Rachel,
With love Pastors Eduardo and Dania Reyes

God blessed my life with Rachel last year. Her strength and faith was inspiring. Rachel was always more concerned for others than for herself, a true servants heart. Her beauty and love for God and her family was more than even she could express at times. She just wanted everyone to know how much she loved her Lord and Savior Jesus and how much she loved her family. She was an amazing daughter, sister, wife and mother. I am so thankful for the example she was to all of us. Rachel we love and miss you more than words can say.

My Dearest Cousin Rae,

I missed you so much before you were even gone, hoping to have another chance to just hangout with you again.

Remember when I would stay at your house and we would play music in your room and dance on the dresser, or the time we cut school and was in the middle of the train, you went into the conductor's room and tried rapping on the loud speaker telling people the next stop. Hilarious! You were always the brave and the bold. Your dad and mom wanted me to go to Puerto Rico with you all, but since I didn't speak Spanish, I would have been a fish out of water. I regret not taking that leap and going with you guys. I would have probably learned Spanish and had so many memories with you and your sisters. I am deeply broken that I don't even have a picture of us together, but I have some letters. The most important thing is that I know you are smiling and happier than you have ever been with our Father in Heaven. Until we meet again.

Love you always,
Ruthie Mae Morales

Chapter 2: CONTINUATION
Second memory: When you read my diary when I was about 8-years-old and tried to explain the bird and the bees (btw, you made it way worse to comprehend). Or when I randomly walked in to your room while you were flat ironing your hair, but not the conventional way. You were crouched down on the floor, your dark brown hair on an ironing board as I witnessed you passed the iron on it back and forth. You even asked me not to tell anyone since it was ‘embarrassing’ (I guess this is before flat irons were invented). My favorite childhood memory is when you over poured syrup on my pancakes and told me, “don’t tell mommy.” You made me feel like it was such a treat and a sacred secrete just between the two of us. By the way, I kept that promise unless mom is reading this now.
I can go on and on with all the fond memories we had together, but it hurts since our memory lane was cut short. All I will remember is that you were not only my eldest sister, but you made me feel so protected. I pray that I develop even a quarter of your strength. You were a true role model-the bravest and the fiercest of us all. You were battling the "Big C" and you did it with such grace, never doubting that God will heal you. You did not let the "odds" lead your thoughts, but instead were led by your faith. Your faith was contagious, strong and uplifting. You remained selfless and even continued to encourage me to seek God and his presence (and for that I will forever be grateful). We no longer have to worry that you are in pain. My dear sister, although it hurts that you are gone from this temporary world, I know you are now healed and living in your real home. We will never forget you and you will forever be in our hearts. Your legacy will carry on through your children and I will always be there for them (like you were for me).
Love you to the moon and back,

Your sister, Sarah Lee (P.S. I will miss watching those late night movies with you)

Chapter 1:
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain." Revelation 21:4
To My Beautiful Sister,

I already miss you and all the great memories we shared over the years. The earliest memory I have of you probably was when I was about five-years-old. You wore contacts at the time and every morning I would see you dip your finger into a tube and pull out this plastic object. My younger self believed it was magic and I so eagerly wanted to perform that magic act myself. But, every time I tried I failed miserably. Until one day, I went into the plastic tube and before me appeared the plastic object. I excitedly ran to you in excitement and said “Look, I did it.” You were also excited but only because shortly after that I dropped your contacts on the floor (which were never found). I learned one thing about you at an early age, DO NOT TOUCH YOUR STUFF (lol).
TO BE CONTINUED in Chapter 2 From Sara Lee……. (I know you liked to read so I’d figure I make this shared memory a chapter in a book)

Rachel,

Where do I start? You were always the cousin I looked up to growing up. You were kind, serious (yet VERY funny with your reactions to the crazy things I would say or do), loving, considerate, God fearing, faithful to the Lord, and thoughtful. I always respected you because you always kept it real. I’m glad to say that all we had were good memories.

One memory, that we often spoke about, was how you made me fat that one summer (3rd grade) feeding me hotdogs and taking me to the movies. You always laughed at that and I did too because it’s absolutely ridiculous - still haven’t lost the weight lol. It was always funny how I would always bring it up and you’d give me the infamous “eye roll,” then you’d smile that warm smile that you had.

Another memory, which speaks about your thoughtfulness was how you would ALWAYS send me something for my birthday as a kid. You always remembered my birthday and it meant the world to me.

Although it hurts not to have you here, I am sure that you are in heaven smiling down on me (still laughing at my craziness). Forgetting you is not possible because you are totally memorable.

A final memory that I have of you saying is, “I want to be a living testimony for everyone.” Rachel, as I told you when you told me that, you ARE a living testimony. Through all of this you maintained faith, poise, and trust in the Lord. Many people, including myself, would not have handled the difficult situation you were going through the way that you did. God answered that prayer because family and friends will always remember you as such.

I leave this saying that I know that one day we will be reunited. I’m so grateful that the Lord put in my heart to spend the time that we were able to spend and to actually talk a lot. I shared things with you and you did also. I love you and may your life always keep on shining bright in our hearts!

In love, peace, and the Figueroa way,

Tiki

Rachel was an outstanding example of strength and faith. She was a many great things but to me she was a cousin/sister and friend. We grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y. together. We spent many weekends and holidays together. I looked up to her growing up. My heart is so heavy and broken right now. The only thing that consoles me is the fact you are no longer suffering. In the last 4 and a half years you have reminded me of why I always looked up to you. You were stronger than I will ever be. Until we meet again. I love you and miss you. Your cousin/brother Rocky

My dearest cousin Racheal : I know you are in a better place and although I wish you can be with us today, I know it was in gods plan for you to join him. Your faith was incredible and you inspired so many people. I love you and your family dearly!

One memory that id always bring up and youd laugh and deny was one time I was about 10 years old and you brought me into a place I shouldn’t have been ! Everyone close knows about the story and I’m sure they’ll remember and laugh as you did when I would recite the story every time I’d see you.

We had a heart to heart about life and following your dreams the last time I visited you while walking over to the Starbucks on August 12th 2017 . You gave me the push I needed and I wish I had the chance to let you know how grateful I am for that chat.

You admired me with your faith, love for god and the strength you had. From this moment on you’re in the best place possible- the kingdom of god , free of pain and in pure majesty .



“I can only imagine when that day comes
When I find myself standing in the Son
I can only imagine when all I would do is forever
Forever worship You
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
Surrounded by Your glory
What will my heart feel
Will I dance for You, Jesus
Or in awe of you be still
Will I stand in your presence
Or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah
Will I be able to speak at all
I can only imagine”

My dear Cousin,
Gone too soon and in the Lord's hands now, may you rest peacefully under God's love and care. Though we saw each other on occasion over the years we always spoke and felt like family and I recall every invitation you extended to me to visit your family overseas. We pray for strength for those you leave behind and I look forward to when we shall meet again in the Lord's kingdom.
With dearest sympathies, your cousin
Abel Figueroa Jr. & Family.
