  1. Dear Lorraine & Family, My deepest sympathy! Upon hearing the news of dear .Rachie, Rach. (my pet name for her)I was immediately saddened and then comforted by the fond memories I possess. I admired Rachel’s demeanor. She was such a Sophisticated Lady, the strength and eloquence in her speech, yet so soft spoken,her meticulous appearance (head to toe) her genuine kindness to all, and her devotion to her family, whom she was most proud of, and, of course, her quiet sense of humor. I enjoyed getting to know her and developing a friendship with her at the Clelian Center. I’m truly sorry for your loss. I know the wonderful memories all of you hold in your hearts will sustain you for Iv’e only known her a few years most of you a lifetime. In Sympathy and Prayer, Jeanne M. Hartley
