    I do not know how to express my sorrow for your loss other than this: Rachel came into my life just when I need her. Her sunny personality showed me I didn’t have to so reserved, so quiet. She showed me how much more fun life is with a smile on your face and laughter jn your voice. We lost touch for the silly reasons that high school girls do and I am so sorry for this. I want you to know I am thankful for her and the friendship she gave me.

    Rachel was such a positive force. I always looked up to her as a kid because she was so extroverted, she was fearless and an amazing light in the lives she touched. Even as far removed as I was from her recently, I will sorely miss her presence. All my best to the Davis family. Give each other a hug from me and my mom.

    I echo the beauty I see in Rachel’s photo. No one can truly feel the sorrow that you bear, but may it help somehow today, to know that others care. I will be looking for the two of you on the run/walk trails to give you a big hug.
