I’ve been posting videos of Raquel on Facebook over the past couple months, since her passing from glioblastoma. It’s been therapeutic for me to find all the treasures of her on my computer. There are so many, that I finally decided to split them up. These are videos from the past few years.
I’m amazed at how many people have told me they are so grateful for these posts. It’s been wonderful to remember her lively spirit and spunky personality. Without her being here with us everyday, I tend to forget some of the things I loved about her, so I really enjoy watching these and hope you do too.
