    I did not know about your mother Rachel passing away. I am so sorry for your loss. God is carrying all of you in His arms until you are ready to put your feet down on the other side of this and start picking up life to go until you meet Rachael in His Kingdom. Just wish the church had put this on the web site so all could know. I am mostly home bound now so unless someone tells me I do not know what is going on. Rachael was so kink and sweet and always had a smile on her face. That is the way I will remember her. Praying for all of you.
