I'm a very close friend of Rachael's, I had the pleasure and honor of meeting Dana and Sandy this past October when I went to the Topsfield Fair with Rachael and her family. I am so glad for the time I spent that day conversing with her family and meeting everyone while we enjoyed their family tradition at the fair and laughing, smiling and having a blast at the demolition derby. Even though it was a brief gathering, I am so thankful and honored I was able to be a part of that fun night shared with Rachael's family, and meeting her mother Sandy and her husband Dana. To Rachael and the Rubchinuk family, I send you all my love and positive vibes and prayers during this difficult time. I actually just lost my mother this past September, so I know this is not easy, but what I've learned and experienced over the past few months is to remain strong for yourself and one another and live each day remembering the wonderful times you shared with Dana. Find the strength to smile at least once every day for him!- When I smile for my mother each day, I know she's smiling back- Believe in your heart that Dana will smile back for all of you as well! I'm here for you Rachael, and for the rest of the family and hope you all find peace and carry Dana's memory within your hearts forever. Wishing you all good health, happiness, and strength! Best Regards, -Therese Marie
