I am so very sorry for your loss. My mother was a long time customer of Rachel. I saw Rachel every time I came home for a visit with my Mom as I usually got to Concord on a Friday and my Mom was always at Modern Beauty Shop on Friday afternoons. These visits occurred over decades. The one thing I could always count on was a warm hello and a big smile from Rachel. Rachel was one of the most caring, kindest, loving ladies I have ever met.

We will greatly miss Rachel. She always gave of herself for her family and others. It was always a joy to see and visit with her at family gatherings. We will miss her smile, her kind words, and her loving heart. She has now joined others in her family in heaven and can help Jackie take care of all of his dogs. Roger, Jennifer, Noah, and Joshua Ogburn
