I work in medical transport and met Rachel 2 years ago. I would often give her rides and during that time we would talk, laugh and listen to good music. When I would visit her facility, I would stop by to say hello, because it was always a pleasure to see her. She was my friend, and she would brighten my day with her funny stories of all her 'boyfriends' at Chandler Post , her happy attitude and her funky collection of sunglasses and hats. She will be missed and I will always remember Rachel.

My Tia Queli was so very humble. . . She loved our Lord, Jesus and His Mother Virgin of Guadalupe so much! Her and I could have some real good conversations about the spiritual world. . . The Good and the bad. . . I am so glad that I had the opportunity to converse with her for a little while at the Family Reunion this year. She picked the 1st Mass Reading for the Family Reunion. She loved her family so much, she wanted nothing but Blessings upon our family:
The 1st Reading (Eph 3:14-21) For this reason, I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of His Glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in Love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s Holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the Love of Christ, and to know His Love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
To Him now who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be Glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
You can bet her prayers will keep coming down upon our family <3
