The pair’s other co-stars, Lisa Whelchel and Nancy McKeon, were not mentioned during the memorial service, but Whelchel had written an essay for the Hollywood Reporter. She shared in the article that she had contacted her former co-stars after she learned of Rae’s untimely demise.

Whelchel wrote, “What was most meaningful to me in processing this is realizing that we were a little family. Especially when you grow up together — and she was such a big part of those growing-up years — we need each other right now to process this.”
