    Rachel you will be missed. Remember when we were kids and all hung out together? Growing up together was really great! What fun we had! Even though as adults we tend to go in different directions, you always had a special place in my heart. I hope you are at peace now. With lots of love, your cousin, Meredith

    She was/{is in my mind forever} so fun and insightful, and caring and open and.. I love all times we shared together.
    ..We used to try to count the holes in the tiles of the high school ceilings. We could never agree on a number, with our selves or each other. 366 i think.

    It’s Nov. 3rd, 2012 and I just discovered with shock, horror and sadness that my dear friend, Sapphire has passed away. I am so incredibly sorry. The last time I saw Sapphire was in late July. We had lost contact and I thought she must have moved to Westborough with her husband, Roger. I tried calling her a few times, but the number was disconnected. I searched for her on the internet today and discovered this shocking news. I am so sorry, Sapphire and to your friends and family (especially your Mom and your cousin Harry) who loved you so very much. Thank you,Sapphire for your friendship and love. I will always treasure it. I will miss you and our great discussions and love of music and the arts and how we shared and influenced each other’s tastes. You made my life a richer and happier one for knowing you. Bye for now, sweet one. I’ll see you on the other side. P.S. I’m still wearing the sapphire stud earring.
