Kaye and Family,
So sorry to hear about your Mother's death. She was always so sweet and nice to all us kids that would come into Caverna Drugs after school. I will always have fond and fun memories of her. Just wanted to let you know that I have been thinking of you and that you are in my prayers through this difficult time.

So sorry for the loss of your mother.  Rachel was such a kind hearted person and I know she will be missed. She lived across from my mother and close to my brother on Owen St.  When I lived in Cave City, she worked at Minit Mart and had a smile each time I went in.  Her brother, Glen, was in my class of 1971.  Hoping for your family to find some peace.

I am sorry for your loss Kaye.  Mothers can never be replaced, but do live on in many ways through their children.  I hope you are comforted by all the good memories you have of her and your family.

Rachel and I were classmates from at least second grade through our senior year.  After graduation, I would often see her when I visited family while she was working at various places.  In school she was always remembered as being one of the quietest members of our class.  Afterwards I was always welcomed with a hug and warm greeting.  My condolences to all the family, but especially to Paul who was also a classmate.
