Thanks for including the schedule here. It is most important that there is a good turnout to ensure that the rally is a success for the remembrance of Rachel and others missing from the area. Especially for Amber, Rachel's daughter

Thank you for making a stop for the families of Tionda and Diamond Bradley, Rachel Melon, Stacy Peterson, Brad Olsen, John Spira and those missing in the Chicagoland area. Your presence blessed our families with the needed ingredients to make sure they are not forgotten and the strength to press on when things look gray. Because of your unselfish love for those that are missing, you gave our families the opportunity to come together and share our stories, pain, and most of all, our love. Continue your journey, but remember we will always remember what you have done for us.

Sincerely,
Shelia Bradley-Smith
