I remember Rachel since she was in Kindergarten and Joe and I were in 1st grade. Will didn't meet her until middle school when he moved here but we both remember her fondly. How stunningly beautiful we both thought she was, how sweet and always had a smile ready for you. This is all so tragic and we are so stunned and shocked by her passing. Poor, Sam, to find his mother like that. Our hearts are truly going out to your entire family while you all are reeling from this horror. I hope you can all, in time, find some peace, knowing she's got to be in a better place than this world that just seems to be getting crazier by the day. Celebrate her life, short as it was, and the wonderful memories that I'm sure your family is full of when thinking of her. I hope at the end of the day your family can find some peace. And know how much and many will forever remember her with nothing but kindness. She was too good for this world. That's the best explanation I can myself to explain such a person being taken at such a time, so young with a child who still had so much he needed from her. Our deepest condolences, Will and Karla Archer Waite
