“Rachael and her husband Paul had a strong marriage. They were both very committed to each other and the boys. Paul has been an absolute tower of strength for the boys since her passing and is making every effort to ensure that they will always remember how incredible their mum was.”
“Rachael and I were nearly four years apart, which isn’t much of a gap but it sometimes made us feel like we were from different generations!
We had our moments, that’s for sure but as we grew into women our sisterhood really came into its own. I think we realised the importance of the role we played in each other’s lives. I’ll always be proud of Rachael and all that she achieved.
She was my best friend and knew me better than I even knew myself sometimes. I miss her so much.”
“Rachael was such a great Mum. It broke her heart knowing she would not be here to see her boys grow up. She did everything she could while she was here to make sure they would grow up to be strong, healthy, loving men.
She told us how worried she was that they wouldn’t remember her and made us all promise that we would do everything in our power to make
sure they never forget her.”
