So very sorry to hear that Rachel is gone at such a young age. She was a sweet young lady who I had the opportunity to teach music to at East Sparta Elementary. She was also in the same grade as my youngest son. Praying for your comfort as only the Lord can supply during this difficult time.

A tragic loss if ever there was one
small sorries do not compare to the words that need be written or spoken.

My Sister -- My Friend
Our shared and seperate memories,
Our lives entwined and apart,
Our love for one another,
Secure in mind and heart.

Long remembered joys,
Never forgotten dreams,
Hurts and hopes, smiles and tears,
We took them to extremes.

I love yoou now, as then,
For the little child I knew
Resides within the wondrous,
marvelous you.

Inviolate and sacred
Our bond will ever be
The line of life that runs
From you straight back to me.

Lisa, I think of you often.Call me any time you might want to talk. I am still at the same phone#.
Love,Barb(Derheimer) Pearson

My sweet Rachel, I will never forget all the great times we shared. All the cookouts and swimming at Grandpa Nesselrode's, shopping with the mannequins at the mall (ha ha), especially holidays and birthdays. Taylor and Jake,(Tay-Tay-Sha-Nay-Nay and Chikina) will also miss you. Love you 4-ever!

Lisa and Family,

Lisa & Family:

I am so glad I was able to be a part of Rachel's life when she was a little girl and see her later all grown up and so beautiful with her daughter Serenity-who definately looks like Rachel all over again.
I remember the times I would have her and Vanessa spend the night and we would have "girls night" it was fun combing her long hair and fixing it for her she was always so sweet. I also remember her wanting to eat scrambled eggs with her Grandpa Nesselrode--such a sweetheart.
Remember all the good, beautiful & sweet memories you have of her and know she is eating scrambled eggs with grandpa everyday now in a safe beautiful place.
God Bless you and your family in this time of need.

Lisa & Family,
I had the pleasure of working with Rachel at Speedway. She was a very sweet girl that will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

Dear Lisa, You have my deepest sympathy in the loss of Rachael. I cannot begin to understand the grief you must feel. I pray that God will comfort you and your family.

If we could bring you back again,
For one more hour or day,
We’d express all our unspoken love;
We’d have countless things to say.
If we could bring you back again,
We’d say we treasured you,
And that your presence in our lives
Meant more than we ever knew.
If we could bring you back again,
To tell you what we should,
You’d know how much we miss you now,
And if we could, we would.

I watched this girl bloom from a seed to a flower, and its hard to believe to see someone so precious to leave us. Rachel was a very amazing girl and worked hard to make it though life. To her family I am so sorry to hear this. I was shocked to hear this news. My dearest sympathy goes out to you.
