I can not communicate much this weekend,because I can verily breath I was just looking on our news webpage and saw your website.Hopefully another day I can Write and wxplain the hell we have been through...You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers
I'm one of Rachelle's 3rd, or 2nd cousins. I don't remember, I lose track. but I am touched that all of you care and our trying to do something. My recommendation, is to go to www.MADD.org and sign one of the petitions against drunk driving.
I am deeply sorry for your loss. I came across this web site while researching DUI statistics for my job. I work for a company who is trying to help with this problem and I will do my best to see that this tragety does not happen to anyone else. Again, my prayers and love are with you, so that you can heal from this.
Dear Rachels family,I am verry sorry for your loss,i live in hawaii where teens drive under the influence,my goal in life is to spread the message that a life can be taken by doing the wrong thing.I am recently in a program called olelo and I am verry inspired by your familys story that i want to do a commercial on it. Again im sorry for your loss, may god bless your family and Rachel.
God I Pray You Would Bless Rachel, Comfort Her Family and Friends, and Speak Loudly To Person That Took Her Life, That They Might Accept Your Forgiveness and Live Their Life For You Too. In Jesus Name, Amen.
I just came across your site out of chance. I am so sorry for your families loss, and pray that justice is served.
Rachel, We were able to honor you yesterday at your birthday party. Your family and friends love you so very much rachel, as do I.. You are so very beautiful, And so very missed. Love you always Curtis
Happy Birthday Rachel! I wish you were here to enjoy the celebration. You are such an amazing person, everyday I think about you and your family. You are greatly missed and forever loved!!
Hello, I didn't know Rachel however I walk in very similar shoes. I met Rachel's Uncle last night at my job. I helped him make flyers and a poster in her honor for the memorial tonight. I myself and my three kids were hit head-on by a drunk driver. My children and I were blessed to have survied the accident. I don't know why some of us are left here on earth and some are taken to heaven. I will continue to fight against drunk drivers and see that the laws in this country are enforced for those who choose to break them. I will pray for Rachel's family. It is an honor to have met a family member and here his story.
I'm in class with Sheri. She did her speech on Rachel on thursday night. It was wonderful! I was touched by Rachel's story! You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Dearest Rachel, Even though we never met you, you will remain in our hearts forever. I don't know how something this horrific could have possibly happened in our neighborhood. We are so sorry for that! We are looking forward to meeting your family on Sunday and being with you in spirit on your 19th Birthday. You were such a special girl to have left such a lasting impression on your friends, family and those who didn't even know you. Rest in Peace Rachel!
sorry, forgot the address: email@example.com
PLEASE can someone email me as soon as possible. I left a message a few minutes ago, and have continued to look around at your site. I have been so touched by Rachel, that I would like to mention her and her story for my speech. I need to know who's permission I should ask. Thankyou, Sherri Keppley
I am sorry for all of you. I am searching the internet for drinking and driving statistice for a persuasive speech I am doing, and I have been touched by your website. The pictures are beautiful. Rachel is beautiful. I too have lost a friend to drinking and driving. It is not a pain you forget, but you just have to keep reminding yourself that your loved one is still looking down on you, and still loving you. Keep her memory alive, by keeping her in your hearts. PEACE BE WITH YOU ALL -Sherri
Rachel, I wish I could have had the chance to meet you. You must have been a wonderful young woman. Your uncle spoke so highly of you and loved you so very much. I know you were loved by many!
Besides missing you beyond belief, I also regret not knowing you were such a good poet! I love reading the verse you wrote. I wish you hadn;t kept them such a secret.
rachel* not a day goes by that i dont think about how special you were to me. you made my life better in every great way. i miss you alot! we grew up at crossrads christian church together and thats something that i will cherish forever. we all miss you every single person at crossrads that knew you. i miss you!!!! i give the best wishes to every single family member of yours for the hard rough times.
I have recently lain awake for an entire night with worry because my older brother by some miracle managed to drive nonstop for between three and four hours while being intoxicated to the point of unconsciousness. I can not begin to imagine how you all are feeling right now. You have my deepest sympathy for your loss. May God bless all of you!
