accident on April 19, 2000, at the age of 23.
A 1994 graduate of Clermont Northeastern High
School, Clermont, Ohio, also a 1998 graduate of
Eastern Ky. University, Richmond, Kentucky. Rachel,
had worked very hard to get herself through college, she
taught at Gallatin County School in Warsaw, Kentucky,
and this was her first year teaching.
She and another teacher shared driving to work.
On their way to work April 19, 2000, Christina, was
driving that day and pulled in the path of a
gravel truck. It claimed both their lives.
Rachel was so proud and enthusiastic about her
job as a teacher. Rachel brought out the best in her
4th grade class. I have had numerous cards and
letters from her students and parents telling me how
Rachel had helped their children. I am so proud of that.
For that is what Rachel wouldíve wanted to hear.
Rachel always gave of herself till it hurt.
I thank God most of all for the day that Rachel gave her
heart to (((Jesus Christ))) on October 4th, 1986. That gives me
the comfort of knowing that she is in the arms
of Jesus and dining at the Masterís table. Rachel
is my little Angel watching over her momma now. I want
and need to feel her presence everyday. I will
join her when Jesus calls my name.
Rachel, I canít wait to see your beautiful Smile once again.
I didnít get to tell you goodbye and hold and kiss you
before you left me and I don't think I could have. Rachel, you
know how very proud I am of you. You have always
been my inspiration and my light. You have always been
the reason I wanted to live. Now you are the
reason I want to be in heaven. Dear Lord
take care of my little Rachel until I get there. I long
to wrap my arms around you once again.
Granny Elsie sends you her Love she misses you so
much. She hurts so bad but she knows where
her #1 grandchild is (((HEAVEN))). Aunt Priscilla
hurts and misses you to and has said numerous times
that you are (((DINING AT THE MASTERíS TABLE))).
Aunt Tracy says you were more like a sister to her
than a neice and that you are (((IN THE ARMS OF JESUS))).
Bev, who LOVED YOU like you were her own daughter
started a (((MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP))) in your
honor, Rachel. Isnít that wonderful!!!
made all this possible for me to share on the internet. I
will be eternally grateful to her. I would like to thank my
Loving Family and all Rachelís friends, students and co workers
of Gallatin County School for being there for
Rachel and me. May God Bless You All.
Rachel, I wanted to do something wonderful for
you, also I hope that you will like what we said and
done in your honor, for it is nothing but the truth
and the way we feel about you. We miss you so very
much that words canít express the aches
and pains we feel in our hearts. Momma Loves
and misses you so much. So I am sending you my
Love & Kisses through the internet, so others can see
how beautiful and wonderful you are.
