Deepest sympathies to Rachel’s nephew Christopher John and his Family. I think Rachel was my Godmother. I was born in 1957 in Dublin and think that my parents lost contact with Rachel Dardis in the following years. I have a memory of Rachel my Godmother visiting when I was very little. She was a lovely lady and have often wondered where she lived her life.
Sincere Condolences,
Barbara Tidey (nee Dunne)
