HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMEN I KNOW!!!



Today marks the day that one of the most amazing people came to join us here on earth. What a blessing she has been to so many people that have been fortunate enough to know her. I remember when I first met Rachel, I was starting to date her brother and I remember seeing her and thinking, WOW, she is gorgeous, and quickly feeling intimidated! I soon found out that she was just as lovely on the inside as she was on the outside when soon after we met I got a ride with her over to a gas station that we were going to meet up with Andy and his cousins in Farmington so I rode with her in her little Civic and found out what an outgoing, fun person she is. I've loved her from the day I met her. I love her love for life, for art, for travel, for the beach, for the sunshine, for her children, for her family, for other people, for the gospel. I believe she must have been so anxious to get to come to earth to experience all of these wonderful things, I believe this because I see it in how she lives her life. Thank you Rachel for letting me be part of your life, you are so fun to be around! I love you!! Have a FABULOUS day!

Oh, Lynne, that was soooo sweet! Isn't she a lovely gal? I sometimes can't believe that I am fortunate to be her sister. She is quite the buddy and always someone to emulate. If you're reading this Rach, "MMMWWWAAAAAAAA! Happy Birthday Lady!"
