Rachel! I’ve finally found the strength to write this and the strength to be strong while doing it. I know for a fact you’d want nothing less. You were an amazing person I had an honorable chance in meeting , when we made conversation we instantly clicked. From day one I knew you were someone in my corner of guidance and someone who loved me through all my flaws, and that’s what I will never take for granted. You were the perfect friend god blessed me with! You were always one call away and you NEVER EVER let me have my head down. You always sent me texts letting me know how amazing I was even if I didn’t feel it just because I had you there telling me I thought nothing less. You loved your daughter and your family you always told me such great stories! You were amazing at what you did as a bartender and touched so many souls and it wasn’t because of your drinks it was because of YOU and you as a person! Your smile beautiful and your laugh I can still hear it in my head I’ll never forget it! You Definitely impacted my life in such a great way! I have my good days and I have my bad because I know you don’t come across real friends anymore. I just can’t fathom the fact I can’t text you or call you or pop up where you are just to see your face! I know you have left a remarkable place in a lot of hearts ! Rachel we miss you and we love you ! Until I get to see you again! <3

I read this quote today. About grief.
"To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die."
Quoted by Thomas Campbell.
I like to imagine that the amount of people grieving, including myself, will allow you to see up in heaven how many people love you, care about you, cherish you...miss you. That you will live out your life through us. That you are never forgotten. That your little girl will grow up and tell her friends, her kids, her partner about how amazing you are. You are one of the most incredible people I have ever met. I miss you so much.

Rachel, I can’t believe it has been two months since I heard your laugh or you called me to tell me some crazy story. The moments spent with you will always be cherished. You were so selfless, so loving, so wise beyond your years. You truly took care of & nurtured every single person around you & half of our friends called you “mom”.. I wish we could have just one more lunch together, or one more FaceTime call. It breaks my heart to know that I will never get a chance to talk to you again or to ask you for advice or to just hear your voice. You were so special to this world & the impact you made on so many people will live on forever. I am so so thankful to know you and to love you. You were, and still are, such an amazing person. Forever guiding the people you are closest to. Miah will be loved everyday for the rest of her life & she will never go without knowing how much she meant to you. She is going to be so great, just like her mom. Until we meet again, please rest easy. I love you.

It’s just seems so unreal that you have left us to be at your forever home in Heaven so soon. I will never forget everything you helped me with at all my shows, the talks and the diet Coke’s you gave me and just the amazing woman you will always be. Thank you for being so real and so kind. Love you always!! Rest in Heaven

I literally can’t believe I have gone this long without hearing her voice. Saying she was my best friend almost seems like an insult because she truly felt like and was and will always be family. I’ll never forget how many laughs she gave me every single day. I live every single day loving Rachel and praying that she is proud that I am doing everything we talked about as far as conquering the World! I’ll never be able to say Honeyyyyy or what’s cookin good lookin without you being my first thought. I love you so much Rachel Laine....stay close, dance often and love us always!

There’s so much I could say but I’m going to try to keep it short & sweet. Rachel I love you SO MUCH. I miss you more than words will ever describe. I want to thank you for being the best best friend I could’ve ever had. We used to always laugh about how we started talking in 2013 & it’s like we just hit it off from there. You were always the listening ear I needed. You always reminded me how much you loved me and that I was ‘the shit’. You were so selfless and your laugh was contagious. I used to regret drinking so much before I got pregnant but now I’m glad it allowed me more time and memories with you. I wish you could’ve met my baby girl you asked about her and talked about her all the time and God took you from us 4 days after she was born. Missing you will never get easier as I had tears in my eyes as soon as I came to this page. RIP to the most beautiful soul I’ve ever met. I LOVE YOU

Dear Sister,

I can’t believe that it has been two months since we lost you. December 18th is a day that will forever be in my memory. Losing you, by far, has been the hardest thing I have ever gone through. The only thing that makes me feel any better is remembering you. I love looking at your pictures and watching videos of you. I love spending time with Mariah and talking about the funny memories we have of you. I know that I have the most memories of you and with you and I am so thankful for each and every one! I’m so glad that we always had a close relationship and told each other how much we loved one another. You know how much I loved having you live with me – I always told you that I never wanted you to move out. I miss seeing your face and talking to you every day. I miss your good cooking, chugging bootleggers with you, finding your hairy rubber bands, hearing your Walmart stories, laughing at you when you fell over or ran into walls. I miss seeing you sitting at my kitchen table and talking to you on my lunch break. I miss hearing your laugh. I miss sneaking up and scaring you. I miss so many things. I miss my best friend. You are not replaceable and you will forever be missed! I hope that this site will capture as many memories and stories as possible so we can keep you close always.

Rachel, I will never forget that time you tried to prank call me when I was at college.  You made up the name Tressa Nicole to try and throw me off.  You were always so full of life and energy.  I will love and miss you always.
