I met this wonderful gal three days before marrying her brother, Mike. We had chatted on the phone, of course, but met in Fallbrook, CA. Rae was also a bridesmaid in our wedding; a very lovely bridesmaid in her navy blue dress, bright blonde hair and beautiful blue eyes. Since that day, she has always treated me with love and respect, even after the divorce. My daughters adored her...went to Loup City every summer for a month for about 10 years. My memories include late nights playing Yatzee over Doris and Keith's kitchen table... sometimes drinking a bit, mostly just sipping on ice tea. Cooking meals together for all of the family...and it was a crowd, clearing the table, just chatting away. Rae and I have stayed close. She was one of the first to check on me after my botched stomach surgury.....Cherie was pretty close behind. The Jenson/Moeller/Lee/Smith families are very rare folks. Intelligent, kind, accepting, loving, amazingly wonderful people. I am blessed by still being considered a part of this family. Rae never stopped loving me as a sister in law and let me know I was still important to her. I hope she knew how much I consider myself blessed, honored and grateful for her simple, kind, encompassing love. I know your Mom, Dad and Alan are with you. Play a game of Yatzee for me. I will never forget you. Lisa

Our deepest sympathy. We were acquainted with Rae Lea from the Multiple Myeloma group in Grand Island. She was a devoted caregiver to Darwin and was clearly the light of his life. May God grant you strength in this time of sorrow. Randall and Alice Heckman
