Rachel was my roommate, friend, and classmate. She loved God, her family, and friends. She wanted to be a pediatric OT, which fit her perfectly because she was creative, patient, and had a warm smile. I have no doubt that she would have been successful because of her ambition, intelligence, and drive. Rachel was so full of love and compassion for others. She would have done anything for anyone. She was a devoted Christian and lived her faith by showing her love freely. Our class feels her absence everyday; that’s why she is our motivation to keep striving towards our goal of becoming Occupational Therapists. We miss her and know she is cheering us on.
