I hadn't seen Rachel in many years, but I have kept in touch with her via social networks since I left Cruces. When I moved to Las Cruces in 8th grade, Rachel was the first to extend her friendship to me. She introduced me to her circle of friends, and allowed me to be one of them. I remember her awesome smile and that laugh that would make you laugh too! I am so thankful I kept in touch with her, and so heartbroken to know she has now gone home. The services were beautiful and a very fitting tribute....I am glad I made the journey to be there!!! I will treasure my bracelet, and am always gonna remember that semicolon!
