“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Philippians 4:13
To the Hockett family: words cannot possibly express how sorry we are to hear of this sad news. Hold in your hearts and minds all of the great memories that you have. When you see a butterfly, or a cardinal, let that moment spark a special hello, and wait with patient anticipation for the time you are together again. Jackie and George Reiber
Our deepest condolences during this time.
“And if I go, while you’re still here… know that I live on, vibrating to a different measure behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me, so you must have faith
I will wait for the time when we can soar together again, both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to its fullest and when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart, ….I will be there” Emily Dickinson

My heart is broken fir you all. I’ve cried many years this morning remembering the little girl that I got to spend so much time caring for and playing with. You were the first neighbor we met on SW Highland Drive and have lots of fond memories of the 10 years we spent there. My prayers will be for your hearts in these days, months and years to come. I’m deeply saddened with you. Much love.
Sending love and strength for this incredibly painful time. With Deepest Sympathy, Michelle & Brent

Words can not express my deepest sympathy for the loss of such a beautiful precious soul as Rachel. I only knew her for a short time but she touched my life in a way I will never forget her. Her family and friends have my sincere condolences. She was a very special friend to me. I will truly miss her friendship♥️
Rachel was always so much fun and could always get you to laugh or at least smile. She was genuine in her words and her hugs. She will be missed. I pray she is in peace and I also pray for peace to her boys. May they know that she is always around them.
Rach and I met about 10 years ago at Valley Hope. I could tell from the beginning she was one of my people. She was definitely one of the realest girls I’ve ever met. She said it like it was, no sugarcoating. Her and I had a kinda unspoken contest on who would send the most inappropriate memes. I keep thinking to send her messages all day, but no more. We loved to laugh and we definitely made eachother laugh. Nothing off limits. My heart hurts so much for her babies and family. She talked a lot about trying to do right by her boys.I know they were her world. Addiction is a bitch! I’ve lost so many people I loved to this but this girl really hurts the worst. She tried and wanted to have a good life, I guess sometimes god has other plans. It’s times like this you wonder what kind of god would inflict this pain on so many people. All I can think of is he was saving her from herself. I love you my friend. You’re so missed already.❤
I met Rachel at Valley Hope many years ago. We went our separate ways when we completed the program but met up again on Facebook a several years back. We weren’t extremely close by no means but we did share intimate stories when we met in treatment and spent a lot of time together during a very hard time in our lives. I followed her hilarious stories on Facebook. She had a way to always make everything funny. This just breaks my heart for her little boys. Taken way to early!! You will be missed by many my friend.
My deepest condolences to you all. When I think of Rachel I see that wide eyed curly hair little girl running around full of joy. Her Moms greatest treasure. I am so very sorry for your loss and wish the entire family peace and love in your hearts.
My deepest sympathy to you and your family. May your precious memories of your beautiful daughter comfort you during this difficult time. God Bless!
