Funeral expenses

As many of you know our mom passed away early morning yesterday. 
My sister and I are very lucky  to have had a mom like her.  We are deeply saddened as well as in shock at the moment so please excuse us if we don’t get back to your messages. 

Rachel is one of the most caring people in the world. She would have given you the shoes off her feet. She lived by the saying “pay it forward” and I never understood it as a kid. Growing up I always asked her what it meant and she would never tell me. She showed me. She showed us nearly everyday of her life even after being diagnosed. 

I have never met a better person in my life. I said this when she was alive and I’ll say it until the day I die.  

We aren’t expecting anyone to donate just putting it out there for any type of help. We are also selling bracelets for $2! Please send me a message for more information on those. If you’re more comfortable
