I am so sorry to hear of Rachel's death. I enjoyed working with Rachel at Heywood Hospital, and then to see her at WHC was a real delight. She always had a smile on her face and was a true joy to be around. RIP Rachel

So sorry to hear the loss of Rachel. I worked with her many years ago at Heywood Hospital. She was a very nice lady, so caring and hard-working.

My Evil Auntie...forever in my heart. You have made such a positive impact on my life always smiling and laughing and joking with the best of us. We all had some amazing times that I will never forget. Even wanting the Chewbacca dinner at our favorite haunt, Southside...your \"little Abs\" isn\'t so little.
We love you and will miss your contagious laugh!
Rest in Peace XOXO

Rachel you will forever be in my heart ❀️. We shared many meals together (that you generally cooked), lots of laughs and many special occasions together. I'm going to miss our weekly conversations, your heart felt hugs and beautiful smile. My life is so much richer for having you as a life long friend. Rest peacefully Rache… you will forever be missed. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’”

Rach, such a great laugh and smile. And so much mischief and fun behind them. Thanks for showing me the ropes on Favor 3 as I was a new nurse 34 years ago. And to work with you again at the WHC and what a great time. Love to your friends and family, Rob, Christine and Micheal. And to your beautiful granddaughters and their parents. May God protect them all and my you be blessed as our newest Angel above. Love Always, Diane
