Rest in the Peace You Sought Raquel... Your Smile, Your Spirit and Your Sass will be missed!!!


You may never realize
The true impact
Your life
Has on others

Unless your departed soul
Is allowed to witness
The painful void
Left in your absence."

"RaQQy .Nearly 10yrs. ago we became friends in the AOL SoCal chat room. I Finally met you in person at BFL in 2014, 1 look across the room and I saw your Beautiful Smile and Gorgeous Red Hair, I rushed over to say Hi and Hugged you... sadly that was our only encounter in person...I Laughed almost daily at your Sassy Outspoken Facebook comments and quickly realized how lucky I was to be on your Friendly side...other than Us being Football nemesis. I Always admired your posts about the "Ladies Luncheons" and hoped that I could One day attend one with you, I'll sadly never get that chance now... Although we weren't "Close" RaQQy your passing has touched me deeply. I will always wish I'd taken more time to chat with you. Your Passion and Enthusiasm for Life was contagious to those around you <3 . May your Spirit find Peace, I'll think of you Often... and even root for your Raiders ..Love ya Gurlie .... ::One Last Wink and Fluff of Your Gorgeous Curlz:: RaQQy.... <3"

"Geezus RAQ….So many adventures, so many concerts, so many bashes, so many parties, so many things we don’t talk about in public. You my dear lady 20 plus years ago introduced me to a little band called KORN. You called it “Crunchy music”. That’s the thing about you most people know. You don’t hang out with Raquel, you have adventures with Raquel. Sorry we drifted apart. I’ll be honest I’m pretty upset TastyMocha and TTLYRED Didn’t get to ride together one last time. WE DID SOME S**t!!!! I will never forget your famous line to me whenever I suggested something to dumb “Hell no dude, someday I’m going to be famous”."

"My deepest sympathies to Raquel's family and friends. She was a difficult person to actually know with her strong and gregarious exterior. It is truly tragic that her beautiful light was extinguished so early and I hope she knew how loved she was not only here in Earth but as a precious precious child of God. I have made a named donation to SAVE(Suicide awareness voices of education) in her name so that her memory will forever help other struggling young women. In Jesus' name I pray for her, Amen!"

"Kelly came into my life when we were in high school. Her father was married to my Aunt. We hit it off right away. She was outgoing, friendly and was absolutely Ms. Rocker! She took me to parties and introduced me to glam rock and Aqua Net hairspray! We cruised Mission Beach all summer - some of the best times of my high school years. I'm so very sorry to hear of her passing. May her soul and spirit shine bright..."

"Never got to meet in person, talked on Facebook many times, were supposed to go on a date, tour of her area when I came out to cali. We flirted, laughed, shared stories, I just spoke to her 2 days before she passed, I felt something was wrong, she said she would be offline for a few, but she would hit me up soon, than I see this, I wish I knew what happened and if there was anything I could have done. Such a beautiful, sexy, funny loving, outgoing, caring, young woman, will be greatly missed.  <3.   Xoxoxo"

Having you in my corner, in my life,  helped me overcome so much. I can't apologize enough for not seeing the signs, for not helping you. You were one of the strongest, most independent, most brave women I have ever had the honor of calling friend. I will always cherish the memories we shared, and you will forever hold a special place in my heart...Until we meet again..."

"Raquel was one of the most wonderful women I have ever met.  I feel so very lucky and blessed that I knew her.  I loved her sarcasm immediately (sister in sarcasm!) and loved her compassion towards her friends.  I always looked forward to her many posts on FB and learned a lot from them.  One of my favorite times with her was when we had attended a wedding reception of friends of ours - it was held a few weeks after the wedding, since they had gotten married in Vegas.  We were kidding with each other that we were the only non family members there.  Spent the evening just talking and having a great time. I will miss you dearly - until we meet again :)"

Heaven's Light by Ron Tranmer

The sun shines down upon us
and gives us warmth and light.
Then when the day has ended
it disappears from sight.

Though we're left in darkness,
we know the sun's not died,
for it is shining brightly
on the world's other side.

So it is when one we love
comes to their end of days.
They just go to the other side
to shine their loving rays.

That's why heaven is a place
that glows beyond compare.
The lights of those who've left us
are all brightly shining there."

This tribute was added by David Edmondson III on 13th April 2016

"The first time I met her was at the Tiki Bar at one of Stu's events. My first impression of her was she was extremely sarcastic. Yes, I liked her immediately. We would exchange barbs back and forth over the Raiders and 49ers, but she was a very cool person and could light up any room she was in. It's still a shock that she's not with us. I hope she finds peace in the afterlife. She will be sorely missed."

This tribute was added by BC Carter on 13th April 2016

I will forever remember our Disneyland days and our Thanksgiving Cruise.  She went out of her way to make sure everyone was taken care of and always put friends first.
