I have so many fond memories of Aunt Rachel. She was smart, poised, and beautiful. Aunt Rachel was always so sweet toward me and her laugh always made me smile. She was a true Southern Lady - At all times, she was well mannered, well dressed, thoughtful and approachable. When I was a little girl, she seemed so glamorous to me. I will forever remember how much she loved her with her two little poodles Lee-Lee and Poo-Poo! Pam Lloyd-DeKany
