Dear Kerri, Denise and Cindy
I am so sorry for this great loss of your lovely and caring Mom, she was the glue of your family. I know you guys didn’t know this but When my son Joshua passed away Diane would send me beautiful private messages on Facebook all the time, either just a check in or a prayer or a saying she felt as a mother I needed, it was so wonderful.
She really was a kind caring women. Oh and she had a smile that would light up a room. She is with you all daily.
Love and huge hugs to you all! Xoxo. Gloria

I have been friends with Kerri and Denise since we were 14 and knew the family very well. It saddens me to know how heartbroken the whole family is feeling with the sudden death of their mother.. My heart breaks for you all 💔
My favourite memory of Diane was before we left the house to go to a party she would start singing... Chip Chip Chippiesss.. And we would walk to Beckers and get her some 😍
You will be missed
