Aunt Rachel's 49th Birthday

My Aunt Rachel Ross would be turning 49 today. She was born on June 14, 1965. Sadly, Rachel only lived for three months outside of the womb. She died on the operating table at UVA as her doctor attempted to save her tiny, deformed heart. 

Rachel was the seventh child of my grandparents, James Kirk and Nancy Virginia Bain. My mom is the eldest of the seven. 

This is the only family picture of all nine of them (baby Rachel in my grandmother's arms and my mom is in the back with the glasses). 

Each year, I remember my Aunt Rachel with my family. I just realized today that Rachel would have been the age I am now (24) when I was born. Happy birthday in Heaven, Rachel!
