Jean and Bobby,
We are saddened by the loss of Rachel and will miss her very much. She was such a dear lady and we had so much fun in our church womens group. She loved cooking chicken and dumplings to share with everyone. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your families that God will continue to be with you and bless you in the days ahead.
