Sorry for your loss. I miss her so much and I wish we didn’t grow apart the way we did. I was going through Facebook and saw pictures of me and her and I just started crying. Rachel was the life of any party and did anything in her power to make anyone smile. Gone but never forgotten

Rachel, I never thought I would be having to do this right now. From the first day of work at the pet store, you welcomed me in with open arms willing to help me with anything I needed. I’ve never had a friend to be as uplifting, supportive, and as genuine as you. The way you interacted with people and animals could motivate anyone to find something that they enjoy being around or doing. I’m going to miss your hyper, funny, always laughing self more than anything. I thank god everyday for blessing me by putting you in my life, and giving me a wonderful friend that I will never forget. Rachel, I love you and miss you so much and you will always have a special place in my heart & life. I will continue to keep your family in my thoughts. Rest peacefully Rachel, we love you.

There’s so much that I could say about Rachel. She was sweet, caring, outgoing with the ones she was close with, funny, loving, and beautiful. Her voice was amazing i could listen to her sing all the time There were times where she would even surprise me with how well she would hit those high notes. She was so smart and so talented. She had so much potential she could’ve been anything she wanted but all I remember her talking about was how much she wanted to do something or anything with animals. I’m so glad I got the time I did with her. I’m so thankful God put her in my life. Jamie I know there were times where I tagged you in posts on mothers day as somewhat a joke but seriously with as much as you’ve done for me and as much as I’ve spent time at your house you really have became like a second mom to me. I’ll always be here for you and your family so if there is anything I can do for y’all anything at all please don’t hesitate to let me know. I love y’all

My beautiful precious niece! You will be so missed. I am happy I got the chance to be your aunt even if for a short while. I remember you and my girls (your cousins) were always singing. You were shy at first but opened up with your cousins. Sweetest little thing and a heart of gold. My hearts breaks for your parents, siblings, family and friends. We are praying so much for all of your loved ones. Fly high and watch over your loved ones here as I am sure you will! We love you!

I just want everyone that knew this young girl and the family to remember how full of life Rachel was.. She was so sweet and had at different times interacted with many of my grandchildren. Though it may have taken a little time to get Rachel to open up boy she was fearless. I watched her many times get up and sing in front of hundreds of people. She did have the voice of an angel and such a beautiful spirit . She was so very talented and would have had a beautiful life because she had so much potential.. She has sisters that are just as talented and just as beautiful and they all loved each other deeply. We will all treasure forever the time that we got to enjoy and have here with Rachel . Her time though short here, she left everyone that knew her with lots an lots of loving memories and fun times. And now that these are memories they will also be forever a treasure to our heart. I know that she is safely now in the arms of Christ and she is bringing as much joy there in heaven as she did on earth.
