Please accept Freight Tec’s condolences – a handful of us here at the office had the pleasure of talking to and working with Rachel for a very short period of time. She was always extremely sweet and funny! Even without ever meeting her, we know she will be greatly missed!
I am so sorry for your loss. But please know that Rachel has been called home by her God, and awaits your arrival with joy and peace. God bless her family and friends.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. I am so sorry for your loss
Please accept my condolences for the loss of your family member, Rachel. I worked with Rachel for a time at GlobalTranz and I remember her as an extremely motivated and talented person. She worked very hard and she always had a smile on her face. I enjoyed her enthusiasm and her drive to be successful, not just for herself, but for everyone around her. Rachel will be missed greatly by everyone who knew her at GlobalTranz.
I am so sorry for your loss. You have my deepest sympathy. If you need anything let me know.

Mary Michelle and family, we are very sorry to hear of the loss of your daughter Rachel. We met Rachel only once , however, you shared with us many times your love pride and joy for her. You shared stories of her equestrian accomplishments, her graduation, how much you enjoyed hosting her friends at your house and memories of her childhood. I heard of Rachel’s passing at work. When I got home, I went to my daughter’s bedroom frantically looking for the book, Merry Hairy , a glimpse of Rachel’s childhood. Thank you so very much for sharing that with us. I will remember to tell my daughter how much Rachel’s mommy loved Rachel, whenever I read Merry Hairy to her. May your faith in God and your memories of Rachel help you to cope with this heartbreaking loss.

Una sola vez te vi hermosa Rachel!!, pero esa basto para sentir la caludez de tu ser. Constante recuerdo la manera amorosa de arrullar en tus brazos a tu hermano Ken., mi nieto.
Aunque ya no estes, tu esencia queda, escuchamos tu voz, sentimos tu sonrisa; jamas nos dejaras por completo. Abrazos hasta el Cielo.
Dear Michelle, dear friend,
This is a hard note for me to write, but I want you to know that I am thinking of you even though I don’t know what to say.
I am hurting for you, thinking that your Rachel has passed on.
I will always remember how you helped her prepare for her friend’s batcholerette party- that Rachel likes her happy colors!
I will always remember how much you love her and also Rachel’s excitement to get her half-Arabian horse!
My thoughts and prayers are with you and I wish you God’s peace!

The rainbow always reminds me of God’s promises. He has prepared room for us where we are with Him.
Rachel was one of kind. She is the definition of living your life to the fullest. I can only imagine your heartache from this lose. Rachel really loved her mom more than anything in the world. Even when we were younger, like we all do argue with our parents about stupid stuffs, Rachel always would write notes between her and her mom the bond was that close. I was lucky enough to know Rachel and enjoy the countless hours we played around in her room at her moms. Rachel was a friend to everyone especially ones that needed it. I ache from this loss but smile when I think of her laugh, her random yelling of certain words when she got excited . DUDE!! Lol her love of being independent and confident. Her love of her doggies even her fish at one point! ill never take for granted our time together fore I know it’s not over.
