"To a woman who was more than just a neighbor, or a friend. Rachel was more like a grandmother to me. She cared for me when I was sick, watched me when my mom needed to work or what have you. ?Santa? always brought extra gifts to their house for me to open. She and OJ even seen me off for my semi formal dance. I?ll remember many of days laying on the couch and watching Law & Order and listening to the daily gossips. Thank you for all you have done for me and mom. It?s been such a long time since I have seen you and for that I am sorry. You are loved. You are missed. I hope you rest in the sweetest peace with your loved ones by your side. To Debbie, my family extends our deepest condolences for a beautiful life lived and lost. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
