It has been almost 2 years since we lost you. It is still difficult for me to believe that you are gone. You were a force of alive energy where ever you were. You were a head turner with your beauty and your gregoriousness. I know life goes on and forward but every so often I'm reminded of us and the other day was one of those days. I've been having a hard time lately and wished I could call you like old days just to hear a friendly voice. Then was going through old emails, cleaning them out and i see one titled "See what your missing? Heehee" with a picture attached that I took of you. This was your way of saying "I'm still here" , wow and thank you. I will never forget you Raquel... P.s. I will post the pic

GONE TOO SOON 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

I am sending you love and light on your new journey. big hugs surround your spirit. Love Cher

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”.
Posted by Brie Brown on 15th April 2016
Raquel, you were a shooting, star you shined so bright but just for a short time, now you're gone and I just can't believe it. I admired your shine and wish I reached out to you more than I did, I will miss you. You touched my heart and your lesson to me now is to touch other and not take things for granted.
Posted by Dawn Leviton on 15th April 2016
My dearest cousin Kelly! I will miss you and think of you always! You were an amazing person who light up a room. I will always remember our fun times at kids and Christmases at grandma's. You are with them now and your daddy. I love you and know your at peace now an amazing place. God has a very special angel with him now. Until meet again.

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!
Posted by David Aronowitz on 14th April 2016
I am so honored and fortunate to have met and have known Raquel for 20 years. The bashes would have never been the same without her. She had a great sense of humor and smile. My thoughts and prayers to the family. I will miss you so much

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...

i know you are in heaven shining bright. Making everyone there smile. I pray you are at peace. Sending love up to the heavens Raq.. RIP

Gone but never forgetten, Raquel you where the realist the strongest and most outspoken women I've meet. You was alway up front and spoke what was on your mind fluffing the curls, Red I'm going to miss you!! Till we see each other again:-)❤️ Rock on in heaven Raquel
Posted by MJ Aubin on 14th April 2016
There are things that will always remind me of you: Raiders love, taco Tuesdays, Starbucks Teavana, sassy redheads and St Patrick's Day. Your Facebook posts were always able to give me a smile or a laugh. In life you brought so much joy and happiness to those around you. Your wit, intelligence and kindness will truly be missed, but you will always live on in our memories and our hearts.
Posted by Myisha Smith on 14th April 2016
I still can't believe it but I know I can't question it. I will always remember your sass and how much life and fun you had. I could always count on a good laugh reading you post. You have touched so many lives and I'm so sad you're gone. You will always be my favorite red head!! Rest Easy beautiful Raquel.

Sweet girl, you will be missed. <3 Prayers to all family and friends.

Raquel, You were one of the first people I had met in this wonderful crazy fun community. So funny and your smile always lit up the room. You are truly adored and loved by many. I pray you are at peace and your family will be surrounded by the love you have shared with them.
Posted by Carol Doyle on 14th April 2016
I'm a better person for having known you. Your quick wit, your cunning charm, your devilish were such an inspiration. Your friendship meant so much to me. 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...
Posted by Jason Super on 14th April 2016
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
Posted by Cliff Thornton on 14th April 2016
Wish someone could have seen the signs and saved you! R.I.P.

RaQ the impact you left on all of us from the first time we met you has been an incredible and beautiful ride. Beautiful, witty, charming with a bad ass twist. You are missed my friend dearly. May the heavens hold you tight and may you shine upon us as you did here on earth.
Posted by Missy Floth on 13th April 2016
Raquel was such a beautiful person, inside and out. I remember my very first bash. She greeted me in the suite with a shot of Tequila and said "you are going to need this, we are not a normal group of people." I will never forget how welcome she made me feel. My prayers go out to her family.
Posted by Andrea Dapron-Hesse on 13th April 2016
I was always so impressed by smart, sassy, bad ass, inspiring, uplifting, real, fucken' hilarious, caring, confident...I could go on forever. I have so many fun memories with her and only wish I had the chance to make more.
Posted by Ron Rose Jr. on 13th April 2016
Raquel was the life of the party I cant believe she is gone. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family RIP RAQ.
Posted by Ilene Frankel on 13th April 2016
Raquel was one of the most loving people I have ever known. So full of life. 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. Raquel was a genuine person who took no nonsense from anyone. She took life by the reins and played out her own personal rodeo. Rest in peace my dear friend, until we meet again. *Rawr * ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
Posted by Kathy Edmondson on 13th April 2016
Raquel will be missed by all, I won't forget our conversations and how much she made me laugh... her hug when she said hi to me.. Miss you girl :)
