  1. A loving, moving tribute to a a beautiful soul. She had so much to give and lived life to the fullest when she could. My sincere condolences to you Rachel.

    1. Thank you so very much Jeremy and yes so very nice to honour her, our childhood together and especially her own life of which I’m very proud. Thank you again for thinking of me. Much peace at this time.

  2. Nothing can seperate us from the love of God. Such true words. And so needed, especially when all seems dark in the world. Why there has been so much pain in this gorgeous family, I don’t know. But, I know the Bowens live life to the full, and I am honoured to know and love them. Love you always Rachel. May the peace of the Lord hold you sweetheart. May he fold you into his arms, and underneath his wings. Kylie I release you and look forward to dancing and signing and laughing with you one day again. Love from Esther, your childhood friend (nee Shannon) xxx

  5. Dear Rachel, I just watched the service for Kylie. Your beautiful words reflected her beautiful spirit. I am so sorry for your loss, a precious sister. Kylie embodied life and happiness during the years that we were best friends; so many fond memories of The Lounge, music, dancing, cask wine, cooking, Tien Dat, late night chats at sleepovers, youth group events, faith and life shared. She made my life rich and full.
