To:The Elliott family this is my second time writing a message on rachel's memorial site. the first time was four years ago. Since then i have and still have kept you in my ''prayers''. It's sad people dont see that what their actions like drinking and driving do to the innocent they didnt see that the innocent had ''lives'' too. Thankful i hope rachel's with her lord jesus christ. Godbless be strong .

I find it almost unbelievable that we have gone through yet another year without your bright presence among us. I am sending Peace, Light, and Love to you on this, your special day, and to your family, as they continue on their journey in this life. Know that we think of you so often. Know that you are missed. Know that prayers are sent up for you. And know that your best friend still misses you more than words can ever express... and she always will. We love you!

Where you are now, beautiful, I trust it is always a good morning. I ache with the desire to hold you, smell your hair, hear your voice - simple things we take for granted, but, oh, how precious. I think of you constantly, especially in the quiet morning hours when I am walking Ida. I love you, Rachel. Erik has a new girlfriend, Sarah, and I am so broken-hearted she will never know you. We love her, too, but she makes me think of you and all we are missing...

Thank you for sharing your story and allowing me to get a glimpse of your beautiful daughter. My 13 year old daughter is working on a project related to alcohol and the impacts it has on people's lives which is what led me to your site. I'm sorry this happened to you. Thank you for having the strength and courage to keep fighting. I cannot begin to imagine what it takes. xoxo

I read your letter this morning in The Sun, June 2013. I looked Rachel up online and found this site. You all are in my thoughts.

Praying for you and your family. She was a beautiful girl. I thank you for passing the message of no drinking and driving, especially since a lot of young people my age now think it's cool. You are a blessing.

Stumbling across Steve's blog and this guestbook have broken my heart. The tragic tumbling of grief like dominos set off by a drunk driver has never seemed so galactically incongruent with how the world should be. Having each other, I imagine, is the only way you both are able to breathe.
Condolences and sympathies sound so empty when I see photos of Steve with the twinkle in his eye missing. I have two sons now 19 and 21...I cannot imagine the grief or the effort it must take just to exist. I cannot imagine Jodi's anguish for all of you. I could never have imagined this for you when you were young, bright, and so full of love for each other and life. Love will find a way...Maggie

I am sorry for your loss, however, her story must be shared to demonstrate the terrible effects of drinking and driving. I am taking a Health Psychology course at my University, I along with my group members are presenting on Substance Abuse. Rachel will help represent the lives lost to this terrible act. God Bless. Love, Veronica, Emelie, Amanda, and Dominique

I am an Every 15 Minute Program coordinator in Orange County, CA. I am sorry to hear of your tragic loss. In an effort to convey the consequences of drinking and driving, I will share your story with my students.

Good morning Jill and Steve and Erik...No words seem appropriate this morning...Praying for comfort...
Rachel's Mom, Jill said:February 21, 2013 7:45 am PST
Today marks 5 years since Rachel was killed by a drunk driver. There are no words to convey how our lives have been permanently altered since Rachel was tragically killed, really for sake of a drink. We are so grateful for everyone who has visited Rachel's memorial website. Thank you for all the love and support.

Hi, I'm doing a speech presentation on lowering the DUI limit in CA to .04-.06% and I managed to find myself on this website.... After reading all of this, I send good thoughts to the family during the road to recovery.
