Rachel was a beautiful, fiesty,fun-loving Mom and friend who my family and I will miss immensley. She lives on in her beautiful, sweet boys, her Supermen. We shared many laughs and many heartfelt conversations over the years, those I will miss the most. She touched my entire family in a special way that will never be forgotten. I hope and pray that as we remember her and her short time with us, that we also remember just how important we are too each other and that the "God Moments" that were spoken of at her memorial continue and we all can live in the now with quality time and lots of love and enjoyment with each other. Rachel, words cant express the love we have for you. I pray you are finally at peace my friend! xoxox

I have so many great memories with you over the years and those will be the ones I look back to carry me through this time. We had some rough times but WE BOTH KNEW THAT WE LOVED EACH OTHER WITHOUT QUESTION. I am so thankful that GOD blessed with you. My heart is broken for sure. I promise to love and take care of your angels forever. Kaden and Ryland love and miss you. Kaden now has a new blanket to sleep with. Love Always and forever Mommy

I met Rachel when she was just a young girl.I worked with Princess and we became instant friends.I went to a church yard sale and Rachel spent all her time helping me buy the things she thought "I just had to have." She touched my heart that day in a way so few people have.She was loved and she knew it.Her boys are in good hands and I know they will always be reminded that she loved them so very much.Rest In Peace Rachel and God will take of everything else.
Shirley Shoe left a message on February 2, 2013:
I met Rachael through her Aunt Pam when she was just a lil girl and would see her often when Pam had her wonderful get togethers. What a bright and sweet child she was. I watched her become a young lady and the last time I saw her was when she graduated HS. She was so looking forward to the future. sadly as it is with Military Families we moved away and I was not fortunate enough to see her again, though her Aunt shared some of her happiness and sorrows with me. I often wonder why God calls his young children home, I think maybe he needs them more and has greater plans for them!? I know boys, that even though your Mom is not there in person she is always with you and your care has been placed in the very best of hands! Be brave and strong and one day you will all be together again.

You will be missed greatly Rachel. I knew you more as a child than an adult, but the memories are good ones. Rest in peace, and be assured that your mom, dad, and Aaron's friends will be here to help them in the many passing days to come.

I will always remember Rachel as an adorable curly haired toddler from when my family and hers lived in Connecticut. Navy families sticking together. I am sure her boys are well loved and will be a blessing to many in their lives, just as her mom was to me. Princess, Danny, Aaron and all the members of the family - My heart breaks for you. Rest in peace sweet Rachel. Love to you my friend Princess, hug those sweet boys for me.

Roseanne Lambert left a message on January 25, 2013:
"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget"
Lehnanne G Kidd left a message on January 25, 2013:
My thoughts are with you during this time. I am a friend of The Ditto family ... I wanted to share a quote that has helped me during times of loss. Anne Lamott said “You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”

Rachel - Your bright smile, laugh and quick wit immediately enters my mind when I think of you : It was always so entertaining having our families spend time together...so many good memories filled with laughter. Andy and I reminisce about you and always start laughing about the funny things you would do and say...which is exactly what we all need right now. Although, we know that God called you to become an angel... it is difficult to believe you are no longer walking this earth as your spirit lives on :

I was there when you were born. How beautiful you were. I remember your mother saying go to her is she ok? I said beautiful Then she said well dont leave me so I hurried back over to your mother so she said well don't leave the baby so I hurried back to you and this went on for quite a few minutes I told them to hurry and give you to your mom because I was torn between the beauty and the beast. You being so beautiful Rachel so alert and beautiful Your mom was so proud and as she held you I could see the love flowing between you both and has never and will never fade. I love you Rachel You will always live in our hearts never to be forgotten. Love you Princess
