Hey lady I'm sure you've seen me cry so much over you, sorry if it's making you sad but, i just can't help it. You where my co-worker, and very quickly you turned into my best friend, and i just simply miss you. Every time Joyce and i talk about you we get all teary eyed and emotional, i know that with time we'll both soon understand and learn to keep our tears for you. Your absence in this world is a feeling that i can't comprehend. I'm so lucky to have had the honor and privilege to have called you my friend, and to have spent countless hours talking to you and just being friends. The world froze when your beating heart stopped, & when your soul went into heaven time suddenly began again. My favorite times with you where in your car singing to the many songs of, "The Postal Service." I'll never forget the day you came into the bowling alley with your mom, dad, and brother. I remember seeing all of you together and thinking to myself, "That's the perfect family." I will also never forget the time you made a quick stop at the bowling alley, i wanted to just take the day off and hang out like old times. You gave me a hug goodbye and said, "I'll be back soon." It was the last time i would ever see that never ending beautiful smile of yours. I came across a picture of you the other day and i couldn't stop staring, i realize now that it was because i was staring at an angel. I miss you times infinity plus one. Lupita
Rachel: I am convinced you are aware of what we are going through on this plane. You know we are trying to wrestle some good out of this horrible, senseless tragedy and will continue for the rest of our lives. Your life and your love changed us, and your loss is no different. I love and miss you more than I can express. I will always, until the day we are reunited for eternity. I tell your mother that heaven just keeps getting sweeter all the time. You will always be your Daddy's little girl, my little Fartblossom. Love Forever, Daddy
As every single day passes on, i hope that you are in a better place, watching over us as we live on. But do keep watching over your family to keep them in high faith! This is Farewell, but not good bye!
To everyone who has ever met or spent any time with this amazing young lady .We will miss her so very much and we will never forget this wonderful lady.
You will be forever missed Rachel. You were a great person, and a great friend. Ill miss you! Love, Adam
It still does not seem real, I hope that everyday we could all just wake up and this nightmare would be over. Your family is truely one in a million, I know your watcing over them and keeping them safe. Please know that everyone here loves you and aways will. You will NEVER be forgotten.
Miss you Good Rachel -Bad RAchel
Rachel, I know better than to think you will ever read this, but sometimes it helps to pretend to be able to speak to you. I miss you so much and will continue to do so. You were such an amazing person, a great friend, and someone who could always cheer me up when I was down. To Rachel's Family: I can't even imagine how hard this has been for all of you. I've lost friends and family friends, but never have i lost someone so close to me as Rachel was to all of you. She was more of a friend than I could've ever asked for or deserved. 100 people could not have amounted to how great of a girl she was.
I never got a chance to meet you but I know you are resting at peace watching over your wonderful family. Take good care of them, they are all great!
i jus wanted to tell you i miss you an you are forever in my heart... xoxo
I believe you are in heaven right now preparing the way for your family and friends. I never knew you in person but I did know your uncle who simply adored (and adores) you. You can see that literally hundreds of people loved you and that you were going to be a person to touch thousands of people if you would have continued to live. But now that your life has been taken you are still touching people. I just read some recent write-ups to see that your family and friends are not only against drunk driving, they are taking time out to recruit anyone they can to see the light - that nobody should drink and drive ever again. The loss is just so great. There is no reconciliation. It is just so very sad about the loss of your life and the messed up life of the gal who killed you as well as the devastation that your having been yanked from this planet is having and will continue to have on your family and friends. I, who didn't even know you, am affected as well. I used to regularly drink and drive when I was a teenager. Then later in life I thought to myself, on occasion, that it would be no big deal to have just one drink and then drive. But now I see that it is not about me - whether I can drive home safely or not - it is about us - all of us. The action is simply not worth it. Thank you for being such a loving soul as to bless us, even in your afterlife that poor souls like me can finally "get it". I will carry the message on to as many people as possible whether I am teaching a class, or in a bar, or having guests over for dinner. I will consciously pay attention to what is happening between imbibing alcohol and who is choosing to drive while intoxicated. Rachel, may God bless your soul and the soul of your family.
Hello my love - I just wanted to check in with you and to tell you how much I miss you. I think about you every moment of every day. I love you...
Rachel, I will never forget you. I will never stop missing you. Love, Uncle Chris
