    Fond memories of Rachel and Carl picking me up from boarding school when I was 10 years old; To bring me for a home visit; They sat me in between them and Mr Cagle let me steer the car; showing me how to keep it at just the right spot in the road. It was my first experience driving; Such a thrill ; I Told her of my Memory when she visited Aunt Lois at the home of our granparents; JohnBrown & AdelynDrake Brown home in 1995;; RIP My dear dear cousin

    Rachel was a sweet lady and good friend to my mother, Catherine Pace Jones, who died in September 2009. Mama and Rachel walked many, many miles together when they were both healthy. Those walks were a source of great joy to Mama both when they were walking and in Mama's memory, after she had to stop walking. Rachel will be missed.
