I met Rae at INA. She was a coworker and a friend. We continued to stay in touch and met for lunch with other friends from INA. She was so sweet and caring. I am so sad that I will no longer see her and enjoy our time together. We always had so much fun and tons of laughs. I will miss her. My Condolences to the family. Rae will be in my prayers.
