How wonderful of Rachel's friend to keep and share the List of 25 Things Rachel sent to her, several years ago. It is soooo very precious. As you said, you can hear her speaking each and every thing on the list. Priceless! This is something that Evan and Kate will treasure. They will have insight into their mother's humor (and it is so ascorbic and funny.)
Have you thought about trying to get her life story (with all of these funthings she wrote, during her treatment, etc.) published? She shared so much, while she was living. Even now, she is still sharing with us. People who did not know Rachel, in life, could and would, benefit from her experience. She fought her battle with wit and strength. She taught us all the value of life and the importance of family.
Thank you for sharing "The List" with us, Rob. Thank Rachel's friend.
John and Susie
