  • I am so glad to have had the pleasure of meeting Rachel. She was such a beautiful, smart, fun, deep person with a heart of pure gold. We had many talks so I really got to know her in a short time. I am beyond sad. Every time I see a sunset or sunrise on the water I will think of her. Every time I hear her favorite band on the radio or see a cactus tattoo i will think of her for the rest of my life. We didn't get to be friends for very long but she definitely found a spot in my heart. I will miss you so much Rachel. Your smile was the prettiest ever! I loved the way you lit up when you talked about or showed me pictures & videos of Sebastian!!! God bless you sweet, sweet friend. My condolences to the family and friends of a beautiful, one of a kind soul... love you always Rachel.

  • Rachel, you were and always will be one of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. You were so sweet, so fun, so loving, so caring, and just so much more. I wish your journey could have continued. I wish we could have done what we had planned to do. I love and miss you so much, Sport. Rest In Peace, Rachel <3

  • Paul (Owlman) I know we haven't seen each other in 40+ years, but I still consider you my friend and someone I have always liked and respected. My heart is broken over your loss. I have a 20 year old daughter that I worry about all the time, I can't imagine what you are going through. Please accept my deepest sympathies and I will pray for Rachel, you and your family.
