    At day camp you never complained about your assignments. You took care of my granddaughter who still gets excited seeing your picture of “Rael”. <br />
You were shy at your first meeting with Troop 4250 but you took to it like a duck to water, laughing at Greg’s terrible jokes. <br />
You have impacted our lives so deeply. We aren’t sure if we can ever honor your memory enough because of the bright light you were to us.<br />
It will always hurt. Fly like an Eagle. We love you Rachel Abendschein.
