Diane was always so kind to me even though we didn’t know each other well. She would frequently send gifts for me with Tammy, especially owls because she knew I liked them. I will always remember her kindness and thoughtfullness. She will be missed by so many but I know you will all be reunited one sweet day. Love and prayers to you all

“To thine own self be true”, a quote one of many I remember you have said and taught me. Many times I have begun to write in your book, yet it is through a veil of tears I do it now. I miss you, I love you dearly sweet mom. I remember one other quote that you taught me. “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Psalms 91:11-12. Now I have one for you, “His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord, Matthew 25:21. I love you and miss you dearly, yet I know one day I will see you again. Until then my love always.
