    When I think of Rae, I remember the “little visits” we had so often when she walked the Corkwood/Baywood circle. Sweet lady!

    She lived her life her way to the very end! I am so very blessed to have met her and to experience her wisdom. I am thankful to have her family in my life! She will always live on through them! I am also thankful God knew her heart…she did not want to be unable to tend for herself and she dearly missed her husband. When she was ready…God took his Angel home! Prayers for the family to heal!
