To “Uncle” Stanley and all the family. I Loved “Aunt” Rachel very much. Growing up along side her children made her feel like family. She was my Sunday School Teacher and much more. I will truly Miss her and my prayers are with all of the family. May God wrap his arms around you and given you comfort and peace because we know she is with God.
