ADD A MEMORY

The things I will miss the most are our little conversations at work about life and family. My favorite memory was when her husband had hurt his foot , she was telling me the story of how he reinjured himself and how stubborn he was being about getting it looked at. She was so frustrated with him and at the same time worried about him like all wives get when their loved one is hurt. But even though he frustrated her, she said " no matter how many times he frustrates me and makes me want to just scream at him, I love that silly man". And she would just laugh and shake her head, and say" My husband, can't live with him some times, but I could never live without him". I miss you Diana, I miss the sound of your laugh and seeing you smile always made my day and how caring you were when I was upset. You will always be in my heart and your family in my prayers, till we see each other again, watch over us all cause we still need you.

So many great memories. I wish I could name them all. They will all stay in my heart forever. We all spent just about every weekend together growing up, either in Kenosha or Racine. Some favorite memories are, playing church (at home & at church), playing kickball and baseball, performing together as "Jimmy And His All Girl band", making her eat mashed potatoes and cream corn for breakfast when she slept over, which I know she loved so much. Not!
Growing up, I couldn't wait for the holidays knowing we would all be sitting around the table together listening to her stories and laughing so hard that my stomach hurt. All of our family vacations, girl's weekend, teaching her how to play UPS. No one can take these, and all other memories away from me.
To all my family and friends of hers - I am so sorry to you for our loss. Her smile and bubbly, outgoing personality will remain in our minds, hearts, and thoughts forever.
