    I am very sorry for your loss. Sending prayers out for strength for you and your family at this difficult time. I love Rachel and I will cherish every moment I spent with her. I may have been the best babysitter ever due to her mom always buying market day cookies and Rachel and I would bake them together start fires and Regan would have to make more later but we dunked our burnt cookies in milk and had milk mustaches and smiled and we had a bond that I will have forever. Rachel will be sadly missed and may she rest in peace

    I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you’re going through. Rachel was such a wonderful person; she’ll be missed by so many people. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” May Rachel rest in peace.

    Regan,
    You did more than any human being could do for Rachel. Her disease is cured now and she is at rest. Be at peace yourself and accept my prayers and sympathy at your loss.
