I originally watched the Unsolved Mysteries episode about Paige Roark and googled her, which led me to this page. So very sorry for all of the tragedy in Rachel's families lives. I'm 26 and I do drink socially, but thank god for Uber! If only everyone was smart enough to use them!!!
There isn't a single day that goes by that I don't think of you.
Middle School was rough for me - I was bullied - Rachel was always such a kind friend. She was the most beautiful, inside and out - so non-judgmental, such an open heart. I remember our choir mornings together fondly - it would be almost 15 years ago now - but I still remember your warmth and smile, and your kindness.
Rachel's death reminds me of why I have despised alcohol my whole life.
Happy birthday my dear old friend!! U are never far from my thoughts and always close to my heart! You changed my life for the better and i could never thank you enough! I love you happy bday
it's been awhile since I have been on this site and it's bitter sweet for one you don't have to suffer Rachel and you are in the presence of Jesus and truly satisfied and the other comfort knowing you will be united with your family one day .I have lately questioned my own faith and am thinking about my own mortality meaning I don't think I want to die without knowing Jesus .even though I never knew you Rachel I have a deep connection to you Rachel since hearing about your story years ago .I hope you are doing great works for Jesus now and I hope if I shall to pass away that I leave a lasting impression on so many people like you have .
You are always in my heart and in my memories, especially on this special day. Happy Birthday to my sweet niece. Never a day goes by that I am not thinking about you, missing you and wondering if I will ever be next to you again.
This is horrible. We need to stop this. My suggestion is to join MADD.
I have been to Rachel's page many times. I finally had to sign the guest book. Rachel was a vibrant young lady, friend, and Christian family member. Her persona is a direct reflection of the Elliott family; talented, fun, humble and caring. I feel so blessed to have known her.
This gives me and I'm sure many other people great inspiration. This sure touches my heart and I hope many people look upon this story before making the bad decision to Drink and Drive. Y'all are beautiful. Best of all my hopes to you. ~Cat (15 Years Old)
I am in 10th grade and i had to pick a topic and give a persuasive speech on it for my introduction to speech class. The topic I chose was drunk driving. I would love to use Rachel's story in my speech. Can you please e-mail me if you get a chance I would love to get in contact with you at all possible my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
My heart goes out to the family and friends of Rachel. I realize it bs to be tough to lose someone so close to you. But she's mo longer suffering, and she's up there with the Angels as she seemed to be.
How about the fact that Elva Diaz is already out of prison!
Wishing a Happy Birthday to my daughter Lyssie's dear best friend! Lyssie misses you every day, Rachel. You are never far from our thoughts , and you live on in our hearts--forever lovely, forever sweet, forever young. ??
I am sick of it! I've been hit twice, 1981 and 2010,(22 yrs. old and 49). Instead of going to war, we ought to invite them here and give them a car, Looks like America kills more Americans than war enemies.
I am so sorry for your loss. Rachel will always be in our hearts. R.I.P Rachel you are and will always be missed.
R.I.P Rachel Elliot. You will never be forgotten.
You will always be missed, always be remembered, and ways be loved, Rachel. You would be so proud of Lyssie and of the fine woman she has become. We know that as she marries the man of her dreams this May, she will sorely miss having you there to stand up with her as she becomes a wife. I know that you will be watching your best friend as she takes this big step. And I know that she will always have you in her heart. ????????????????❤️????
I saw this website on the art installation in front of Farm & Table in downtown San Francisco and looked up Rachel's story. This has touched my heart and will influence my actions when I get back to Texas, continuing to make sure that myself and my friends are responsible on the roads after a night out. There are so many alternatives to getting behind the wheel intoxicated, I'm so sorry that you are suffering from one person's careless, selfish actions.
Rachel is a deep color in the landscape of our lives and our love for you all.
