    We were saddened by the passing of Rachel. She was a very special person to us being the mom of our loving daughter-in-law Angela. The few gatherings we were able to share with her since moving here were precious times. Our prayers are with her family.

    Jimmy, Tina, Lisa and family; Rachel was a strong Christian, a class act (when we were growing up, she was the standard of comparison among parents for good behavior) and as an adult she embodied her Christian faith in her daily activities. I stated these well known facts to say this…Rachel is basking in the light of the risen Lamb and singing praises to the Great I Am! Rachel is overflowing with the joy of the Lord, the kind of joy only found in His very presence. Thinking about the joy, peace and love my wife and family members entered into helped me weather a lot of grief and sorrow and I pray it will help each of you. I had planned to be at the celebration of Rachel’s life today but I pulled something in my back doing yard work yesterday and compounded the problem this morning so please know I am and will be praying for you all……Terry
