Please forgive me Angie I did not realize with the name change that is was you're Mother and my cousin that had died. Our Mothers were twins and bonded for life, although growing up in different states it was hard to have close relationship. I will always remember her giggle/laugh especially when I tried to shock her being a Calif girl. She stayed with us once and I took her with me to all the places my friends went. But we were too wild for her and she went back to Ark I think around 15 we were. God bless you at this time it's hard to lose you're Mommy but shes happy now, she has her Mommy again. ❤Susie Hicks
My dear,sweet cousin. You will be missed. I will miss our phone conversations which you would end by saying "I love you." I'm not saying "goodbye", I'm saying "I'll see you later". ❤
My heartfelt prayers and sympathy go out to all of my cousins and the entire family. We all grew up together and l wouldn't take anything for all those precious memories. Diane always had a heart of gold. I know her presence will be missed. Love you all and pray for God's peace to be with you.
