    Rachel was a sorority sister and I am heartbroken to hear about this. She always had a witty joke which added so much to every conversation she was part of. We will all miss her so much. I sincerely hope someday her memories will bring you less sadness and more joy.

  • Please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. Rachel was a truly incredible person and absolute joy to know and teach. I can’t count the times she brightened my day with a smile or some offhand remark.

    Please accept our deepest sympathy in the loss of your daughter. We did not personally know Rachel or her brothers but I do remember you, Robert and Rene from First Baptist Church in Ft. Inn. We have all had a close relationship with all the Garretts and several of the children drove our school bus. We all lived in the Bethany Community so we go back many years. Robert, please give your mom David and my love.

  • I was one of Rachel’s suitemates at the College of Charleston for a semester. Whenever we spoke she was always very nice and I always enjoyed talking with her.
    We talked about how she was a member of Phi Mu at her previous college and how I was a member of Phi Mu at CofC, a few days later she left me a Phi Mu cup with the sweetest note on the kitchen table. I am so glad I had the opportunity to know Rachel. I am sad to her about her passing and I am so very sorry for your loss.

    Rachel was one of my closest friends in high school and middle school. When I was the new girl, she accepted me and made me feel welcome. We had so much in common and yet were so different at the same time. She would walk with me to class and sit with me at lunch. I still remember everything. I still remember how she loved Perks of being a Wallflower, and the Smiths. She gave me my first Bob Dylan vinyl, and is one of the reasons I love him so much. We saw a Beatles Tribute band together, and I wish I would’ve know that that would be the last time I would see her. Rachel, I know you are in a better place now. No more pain. And I will see you again and make up for the years we missed together. I love you so much. Rest in peace angel..

    My heart aches and breaks for you each. Remember Rachel is with Jesus now — full of His joy, peace, wonderful experiences daily beyond our imaginations!!! Jesus’ promises apply to all us His children as a part of His kingdom!!! Jesus said, “This day (at death) you shall be with me in Paradise.” And in John 14:19 “Because I live you shall live too. And in Hebrews 13:15 I will never leave you nor abandon you.” and Romans 8:1 “There is now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus.” And Romans 8:38-39 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. And in Psalm 139: 13, 15-16 “He knew us each before we came to be! And He knew every day of our lives before any one of our days began!!! Luke 18:1 keep praying and never give up. He wants us involved with Him❤️
