2 Comments on “Rachel Weinschel Motes”

  1. Motes and Weinschel Family,
    My sincere condolences for your loss. I have such fond memories of playing on our farm, on your farm…kids, dogs and peacocks running wild. Rachel was such a unique soul…bookworm, math wiz, and full of life. I will always remember her favorite phrase when we’d ask if she wanted to join us in some game of hide and seek or make believe……”Let’s not and say we did.” Sending prayers and lots of love to friends and family.
