|Let the memory of Rachel be with us forever|
"Rachel left an impression on me from the first time we met in Berlin. Such honesty, care for another, motivation and purity of speech are a rare find. May we all be inspired to adopt from her good traits in their merit.
"May Rachel's memory be a blessing"
Dear Mrs Sherry Guimoye, as today is the first Yohrzeit of Rachel, if I'm not mistaken, I wanted to leave a short note to you as her mum. I am sure that many people miss Rachel a lot. My husband once told me that the Talmud says, a neshama that had to leave this world still knows what is going on with the family, friends, relatives. There are many things you still can do, so that your daughter's neshama gets up into even higher spheres. Maybe there are ladies in your kehillah for example, who organize a monthly Rosh Chodesh Meeting for the women, where all the women bring various kinds of fruit - pri ha adomo, pri ha etz, mezonot, grape juice and besomim and answer "Amen" after every brocho. One can set up such an "Amen-Meeting" under the motto of - le iluy neshama of Rachel bat (name of the father), so that her soul might even reach higher levels. This might be also something that consolates you and gives you lots of chizuk b''h. Please, whenever you might want to visit Germany, get into contact. We would be very happy to invite you for shabbos or simply for a cup of coffee. I know that there are still young women here who knew Rachel personally from the girl's seminary. Maybe you might even have a chance to talk to them as well.
All the best, with a big hug, Riwka V., B., Germany"
"This is Rachel's mom Sherry Guimoye. I just wanted to give a brief synopsis of her life . I knew I would have a special child before she was born. I sent her to a Yeshiva and felt pressured to send her there by a higher power. I did not have much faith , but I wanted my child to have faith. So she ended up having pure faith in Hashem, like no one I had ever seen . Before she passed her and her husband were so pure, so kind. I loved being with them. Everything Rachel did she excelled , but she told me Hashem was most important to her. I know there happy in heaven and hopefully I will join them someday."
"i'm Rachel's mom. I haven't been able to get into this site, but i.m here now. She was the love of my life, my only child and she's gone in a minute. if anyone needs me I'm in the usa. Call me 732-996-0454
"I'm very sorry. I had known Rachel in Germany and she was the first person to tell me about saying "Mode Ani" in the morning and to tell me about the concept of lashon hara.
Her path in life is a big inspiration.
She was a unique person."
"I knew Rachel only from sight, actually have never spoken to her I think, but I knew that she was a student in the jewish girl's seminary in B. for a certain time. When I once went to Munich, it must have been in winter 2011 or 2012 I guess, and had lunch in the restaurant in the community center, I saw her also ordering a meal there, but I did not go over to speak to her, which I felt sad for afterwards, but I did not understand why. When I heart last year that she tragically had to leave this world together with her husband, I suddenly remembered this episode in Munich and regretted not having gone over to her and spoken to her on this day in Munich. I was really sad to read what had happened. She had a wonderful smile and very positive, warm aura. For some reason I remembered her today, when I found old email messages, where her name was mentioned. Then I found this webpage and am grateful for it."
"Hello, dear friends!Who created this site??Very nice, you did it!
I remember Rachel a lot, she was my close friend...She was very special, and I miss her very much!!!But I think for her soul, the best is to do a lot of Mizvot and to think, it goes to "ilui nishmata" and her great husbands. The Shabat she went, we planed, they come to us, to Haifa, and I just wasn't enough organized, to plane it, and thought to do it next Shabat..."
"So sudden and so tragic...
Have a suggestion for us?
