Aunt Rachel was so sweet & so much fun. We have many wonderful memories of family get togethers. One of the many memories is when she, Mom & I went to South Padre Island for a week. We had an absolute blast. We even honored Grandma Mandell by going into a bar/restaurant and asking where the Yalta Conference was being held. She was an amazing & special person & she will be missed tremendously. She will forever live in our hearts. We love you, Aunt Rachel.
