So sorry to hear this. Diane was always ready with a smile and a greeting. We will miss her. Prayers for her family.
Aimee and Scotty, your sweet mother meant the world to me. She became my pen pal after my mother died and walked with me thru some very dark days. Years later, when my son was born, she reminded me what my mother would’ve done if she had been here, and showered me with package after package of baby clothes, sent a huge flower arrangement to my baby shower, and covered me with her love. I will always treasure what she did for me and I will miss her for the rest of my life. Thank you for sharing her with me. ❤️
So sorry for your loss. Her smile will surely be missed.
Scott and Aimee. I am so sorry for your loss. We are never ready to lose our Mom. You two and the grandchildren were the light of her life. Our Mom’s are our true best friend and Diane was y’all’s Best Friend. Praise God she is at piece. May all of you feel God’s Comfort at this time.
