The Akenbauers

Rachel was a huge inspiration to our two sons, Josh & Jaden. When we told our boys that Rachel had went to be with the Lord, they both commented that they felt like they lost their older sister. Her infectious smile always brightened the room wherever she was. Her giggly, fun personality always made our two boys feel welcome. She took the time and energy to always reach out to them, to inspire them that no matter what the odds you are facing, you can get through it.  Both boys said, their lasting impression of Rachel was her bravery and positive motivation to put life in perspective that we all fall so short on many times. We love her so much and will miss her dearly.
