Ray, Terri and Family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time, and in the days to come. Rachel was such a blessing to know, and we loved seeing her beautiful paintings, and her tea pots. She was always so graceful, kind and loving. We will miss her presence as we all await the Lords coming.
