Remembering Rachael


I never met Rachael but know people who knew her. She passed away a year ago today after a seizure. I think she was 22. This happened immediately after my daughter started having seizures again so it really struck a chord. Thinking of her poor family.

Thanks for sharing your memory of her (indirect as it is).

Another life taken. Please say a prayer for Stephanie and her family if you are that way inclined. http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/sc...9-dies-1887533

Thanks for your replies. I did swither about posting for fear of upsetting people. I know it's a tough subject but I don't think it's one we can afford to shy away from, no matter how much we want to.

It does also serve as a reminder of how precious our loved ones with epilepsy are x

My Dad died when I was 22 (he 52)...and I learned
then to celebrate one's life! Granted, we all have to go through grieving
for the loss of a loved one, whether young or old. However, healing is
helped *greatly* by celebrating the wonderful times you DID have with that
person.

I now know 10 young people who ALL took their own lives, thanks to $cientology.Life is precious and we each need to keep that in mind: Life rolls on: DON'T MISS IT.

My love and blessings to the families and loved ones who did lose loved ones ...especially at such a young age, due to seizures. (((hugs)))

Another young life lost to epilepsy. Nathan was 19 and he and his 17-year-old partner had a five-month-old baby. So tragic.
