I was saddened to hear that Raquel had passed away she truly was a beautiful woman with a kind, loving, caring and beautiful soul she will be missed. I enjoyed our time together at all of our family gatherings where we would always wind up in the kitchen doing something and we would have great conversations ranging from work, hobbies, relationships, travel, and life in general. You will be missed, rest easy Raquel I love you 😘

joebross3845@gmail.com Raquel will be greatly missed. She was a sweet lady, with a beautiful smile and a wonderful sense of humor. Raquel was not only my aunt, she was also my Godmother. When I was first married, Raquel made me a ceramic gingerbread house cookie jar that was proudly displayed in our kitchen for many, many years. When my children were born, Raquel crocheted beautiful Afghans for my babies. I have many sweet memories of her at family dinners, barbecues and holiday gatherings. I love you Raquel.

Raquel was a beautiful person. A great mom, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. If you knew her , you knew kindness. I still have a blanket she crocheted for me many, many years ago. Whenever I become ill I reach for Granny's crocheted blanket. It always soothes me. God bless Raquel. She flies with the angels.
