Rachel was truly one of a kind! She would light up a room when she entered it. I haven’t seen Rachel in many years since her and Andy divorced. She was the first one to cut my son Dylan’s hair. She gave him a playpen when he was born and made him pillows. I still have those pillows today. She was such a loving and sweet friend! Fly high Friend! Forever in our hearts!!! We Love you, Rachel!!!! TRUMP 2024🇺🇸

She was a wonderful friend and great hair stylist for 23 years to me, over the years she became a wonderful friend, I was her towel folder, foil puller on my monthly trips, and the talks , laugh, sometimes me crying pn her shoulder and her lifting me up with words for God, I could walk in the door and she would know how I was, she could read you like no other. My heart breaks for the family and all of us she left behind, she will be missed by so many. I wasn't able to come home from Virginia but my husband and mother will come to say my good bye to her. Just know she is with our heavily father and no longer sick, and probably talking God ear off. Prayers for us all tomorrow as you lay her to rest.

I’m so shocked. Rachel had just done my hair. She was so sick that day. She was my beautician for close to 30 years. I will miss her so much, she always called me wild thang. She was the biggest Trump fan I knew. She will be missed so much. My heart and prayers go out to her family ❤️🙏🏻

When I first walked in your shop at 8 years old I had no idea my life was gonna change for the better! You were so outspoken and just REAL about everything! Going to see you was the best experience ever and I looked forward to it every time! You will be missed by soo many! Thank you Rachel for these wonderful memories I was blessed with and thank you for all the kindness you showed me for almost 30 years! I believe it was your kindness and personality that helped me find my wife who is also a stylist! Again I will miss you more tan you will ever know and it was such a great blessing to have known you this long.

Our family is heart broken that Rachel is no longer here. She loved us so much and we loved her. She had nicknames for each one of us and she would always share her reasons with anyone who came in. I loved her honesty and her love of God. I don’t think I have ever met anyone with the fire she had in serving our Lord and Savior. We are going to miss you sweet friend but I know you are rejoicing with the One you love the most. We love and will miss you more than I can ever put into words ❤️ Bob, “Polly”, “Fluffy”, “Kota Bear” and “Captain Underpants” 😘
