My sister was very special to me. She helped me as a very young child, giving me my first manicure. She loved to dance and sing including being able to yodel when she was younger. She loved her family and held Christmas as a very special time. It was her favorite time. We will miss her terribly and love her much!

I have so many memories flooding back to me when I heard of your passing. You always seemed happy even when life threw you some tough situations. I am so lucky to have been your grandson and will see you and mom again some day.

I am so blessed to have had such a wonderful mother-in-law in June. June was such a joy to hang out with. She always had stories to tell of when she was a young child, her time working at Pratt & Whitney, etc. I always told her she should "write a book". I wish she had as it would probably be a bestseller! But I will keep those stories in my heart, just as I will keep her laughter, her love for her family, her joy and the talks we had. Thanks for the memories "Mom".

June's laugh was contagious and her genuine kindness a blessing to me. I am a better person having known her. She will be missed.
Rest in peace, June Diacumski!
