Rachal was a beutiful person , inside and out. She was always ready to help anyone, and was most always the first one on the floor any where she was to help clean up, or just help with anything that needed to be done. Cannot say enough about this sweet lady. She was a great friend to me and I loved her for that and much more. she will be missed. Rest my dear friend . DEE SMITH.
