I still remember Rachel’s enthusiasm and drive when she peppered my group with questions. I thought to myself this girls gonna go far and give the profs a run for their money. My condolences to her family as she would’ve made a great chemist and scientist.

It was two weeks ago when you said goodbye and see you tomorrow for the meeting to me as your smiling eyes above the mask retreated through the partially opened lab door and disappeared behind it...... which stays on that fateful Tuesday forever.

Rachel was so beautiful inside and out. Last year we went to the archouse together in DC. I was in a very dark place and she brightened my day. She didn’t know how much she had helped me that day. My prayers are with her family. She will be missed. <3

Rachel brought kindness, inquisitiveness and a special brightness to our teaching team and her undergraduate students at Georgetown University. I only had a year to get to know her, yet I can feel the emptiness her passing has created. With a heavy heart I share my deepest condolences to her family and friends. Rachel will be profoundly missed.

Nadia Sarfraz left a message on August 9, 2021:
Rachel, There are too many thoughts and not enough words for what I’m feeling right now. You were a fighter and worked so hard always, with a profound competitive spirit and kind heart. Though our time together was cut short, I will always treasure the memories we had in Polymer chem, visitation weekend, and the love for Lush products that we shared. The last time I saw you you were getting into the elevator in Regents with snacks and we smiled and laughed. We planned to go to that new vegan restaurant together.. you were taken from the world too soon, but you will live on in our hearts and minds till we meet again.
