My heart is just broken for all the lives you touched Rachel. You were fun to work with and glad God let our paths cross for a short time. Today I went to lunch and there was a special breeze on a July day, I felt like this was a gift from you. Letting us know that you were flying high and you are in a beautiful place. I can't understand why this happened but I know God has a plan. You will be missed by many; you touched a lot of lives in your short time on Earth. Prayers for all your family.

I am heart-broken for the family and pray for the peace that passes all understanding. Words cannot mend a heart shattered into a million pieces and as I searched for the right words I found this wonderful prayer! A Prayer To God In Time Of Great SadnessO Lord God we come to You at this time of great shock and grief and ask that in Your grace, You would shed Your peace and comfort to all who are mourning this death - that was so sudden and so very unexpected. Lighten our darkness O Lord we pray, and comfort our sorrowing hearts. Pour Your peace that passes all understanding into the hearts of all that are grieving and shower the assurance of Your love on all - at this time of sadness. Lord we are not to grieve as those who have no hope - those that have not trusted in Christ as Savior, for our hope and trust is in You and our eyes are looking to You for strength, encouragement and comfort at this time of great sadness. Lord it is at a time like this that we suddenly begin to realize the great frailty of life and the brief portion that we are permitted on this earth. Cause all who are grieving here today to take stock of our own, individual lives and help us to be wise and to number our days. Help us to live our lives as unto the Lord, knowing that at any time You may choose to call us home as well. Thank You Father, that our times ARE in Your hands and there are no sudden deaths in Your economy. May we live wisely from this day forward and use us we pray, to be a comfort to others who may experience similar times of great sadness, In Jesus name we pray, Amen

I never met Rachel, but I know Her Mom and Dad. I went to school with Helene, and she is one of the smartest, sweetest people I have ever known. I am sure she passed this on to her daughter. My heart is breaking for this beautiful family. Praying that God grants them strength and healing.

Rachel was amazing & flawless when she & Josh Harrel did the ‘fast ‘ jitterbug. They could have gone on the New Orleans circuit. What a smile!! We have many wonderful memories of times our families spent together at the Walker home. Rachel was all knees & elbows til she ‘grew up’.

Brenda collins left a message on July 22, 2019:
I was blessed to teach both Rachel and Drew in first grade. When I received the message that Rachel had passed away, I was heartbroken with a bitter sweet assurance that she was now in her Heavenly Home welcomed by her beloved Grandmother Helen Burns. Rachel walked into my classroom with her contagious smile and big beautiful yes and she made my day everyday. Her happiness and kindness to everyone endured her to all of us. She was always happy, kind to others, and extremely loving giving lots of hugs everyday. Rachel was first to the reading circle and ended up right next to me for story time. She won my heart with her first smile... Rachel was the daughter every mom and dad dream of having, the sister that took care of her brother and loved him dearly, and became the Virtuous Woman and a Pearl of Great Value to Jason, and a mother who adored and was dedicated to her precious daughter, Kate. Although she left us all too soon, her examples of love, faith, caring for others, motherhood and ideal friend to all that knew her will live on in each of us forever. She was blessed beyond measure with Godly Parents who raised a remarkable young lady, and I was blessed the same with the opportunity to be a small part of her life and she will forever be in my heart. My prayers are with her very special family that they will cherish the wonderful memories of their lives with Rachel and that God will remind them of these blessings each day with sweet memories from her example and her faith in Him. I will always remember Rachel as one of my very on and one of the my greatest joys of teaching. My sadness is great and my heart is broken, but my joy is full knowing we will be reunited with her one day. Helene, Jimmy, Drew, Jason, and Kate, your daughter, sister, wife and mom has touched this world and made a difference and her spirit will always be with each of us. My love and prayers are with all of you at this most difficult time.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
