My sister Rachel was 10 years younger than me, full of life and a kind, passionate soul. As a psychology major, she was always interested in how to make people feel better. She had a small business "Healing Hands" focused not just on massage therapy, but also ancient healing methods such as Reiki and EFT Tapping. She was a wonderful mother (James) and wife (KC) and an amazing musician who could sing with unbelievable power from her tiny 100lb frame. Her songwriting (band "Little Pieces") reflected 'little pieces' of herself-check it out online. We lost her in 2015 to brain cancer, but she stayed positive throughout and wrote in her book how to live life fully regardless of outcome. Shouldn't we all live that way with or without a diagnosis? A big-hearted business owner can own any size business: she was a perfect example.
The Bottom Line of Happiness
This book is dedicated to my late sister, Rachel Hazelwood. Being the youngest of four siblings, she was in many ways the best parts of all of us. A big-hearted business owner herself, she dedicated her life to her family (including her husband KC and young son James) and those she cared about. She was a consummate healer. She was also the first author in our family. You can find her wonderful book Looking Into Heaven: Faith and Healing Through Brain Cancer on major online retailers. We miss her, but she’s undoubtedly a lead soloist for God’s choir in heaven.
