I really cannot express the sadness that I feel with the loss of Rachel. The last time I saw her was when she was in the doctor’s office expecting her first child. What joy she had that day and that is always what I will remember about her - her positive outlook on life. She was such a warm and sincere individual - always let your memories give you comfort in the days to come.

From another bereaved parent;
You have now joined the group, that is unfortunately growing, that no one wants to join or be part of, that of bereaved parents. Please know that there will be good days and not so good days; as time passes, good and happy memories will help to diminish the sad ones; whichever way you choose to memorialize your loved one will be right for you. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

To know Rachel was to love and admire her. She and Brandon were such a good team and Rachel was a terrific mother, daughter, granddaughter and sister.

Nancy and Marc Muser
Nov 12, 2017 09:06 AM

Dear family!!!

Rachel was a joy! Rachel always thought of others. A very inclusive and loving personality. Rachel had the charisma to make everyone feel special and important. Always sent a card acknowledging simchas in our lives. At her own wedding she handed a baby gift to Jody and Joe who had just become grandparents.
She played Mahj with us at times and it was always a great laugh as she took her phone out to get a picture of her hand to show us after the game was over. Always a good laugh!
No task was too small or too large for the Rachel and Brandon team. We will always remember when we were sitting shiva for Marc’s father and pineapples were delivered. Rachel was “we got this!” She and Brandon went out and came back with a tool for cutting pineapple. This is who she was. To know Rachel is to love Rachel. All of us are so very sad at this loss. We love you Rachel. You will be missed.

Nov 14, 2017 06:38 PM

To the Otto, Cooperman and Schnitzer families. I hesitated a while to write a note/memory because it took some time to think of the appropriate words at this time other than the feeling of deep sorrow that's in both Rob and my hearts. The one fond memory that I had about Rachel was the comfort knowing that she was my children Blake and Meg's bus councelor taking care of them while going to camp. I always saw that sweet smile in the morning. I believe I let her know my feelings. Would she had remembered I don't know. The important part was that I did and always will. I thank Ellen and Howard to have brought up two special girls. But without the wonderful parents they had there would be no other way. Love to you and know that friends are always around.


Ivan, Laura and Garcia children
