    Thumbs up Rachel's Poem by my wife Janet

    Rachel by Janet Cooke

    With each passing day
    Comes the evening grey -
    And another tear.

    Rachel where are you?
    Come home to me.

    A warm smiling face
    Twinkling eye
    A bounce in your step
    Caring heart
    driving dreams.

    So many hopes yet to dream
    So many dreams yet to achieve.

    Playing dressup
    Barbie Dolls
    Weebles that wobble
    Sheera and sidewalk chalk
    Panda Bears
    PooBee
    Peep Pie
    Playing giddy up horsey on that Old Oak Tree
    Make believe cannons fired off the deck.

    So full of life
    Yet dreams to dream
    Stars to reach.

    We walked the beach
    searched for treasures
    Jumped the waves
    Snorkled beautiful reefs
    of faraway lands.

    Whenever you needed
    you reached out your hand.
    Mine would be there
    to love, guide and protect.
    Now I feel so helpless - What can I do?

    Sweet and Melodic
    the words of a song.
    Take flight from your lips
    and touch my heart.

    So much to say to so many
    We search night and day.
    Oh Rachel our angel
    What can we say?

    Whomever is knowing -
    You must know we care.
    Let Rachel come home
    Or please tell us where.

    Post JoAnn's Poem

    Our daughter JoAnn also wrote a poem about Rachel. See read it in public for the first time at the run/walk. I am going to ask her if I can post it, too.

    It was nice meeting you yesterday AustinGirl.

    I had the privilage of watching you read your poem on Showplace Showcase the other day. It is very touching.

    I hope with all of my heart that Rachel comes home to you and the rest of her loved ones very soon.

    Default Dear RC,

    Can it really be almost four years?

    My heart goes out to you, and to all those who loved Rachel so much. I will listen for her singing with the angels on Christmas.

    "Glory to God in the Highest, and Peace to His people on Earth".
